PENSACOLA, Fla. – A Florida seafood company says someone stole 17,000 oysters.

Pensacola Bay Oyster Co. posted photos on Instagram of more than 35 empty bags that were tossed into a wooded area along the beach in East Bay on Tuesday. They're offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the theft.

The company said it's a "disappointment to find out someone would take it upon themselves to loot oysters."

They asked customers to be patient as they work with police to solve the crime.

Attention Pensacola Bay Oyster Fans- We sadly learned today that our East Bay lease was robbed of over 17,000 oysters!...
