(Meredith) - Police have arrested a mother and daughter who are accused of stealing $200 worth of crab legs from a grocery store in Tennessee. 

The pair allegedly stuffed the seafood into a purse last week at SuperLo Foods in Memphis and punched a store manager who tried to stop them, WREG reported. Police said the manager was "struck twice in the face," as the suspects attempted to flee.

Officers later arrested Felicia Hollins and her daughter, Gabrielle Hodges, who reportedly admitted to swiping the crab legs. Both are charged with theft of property and assault. 

A second store manager told WREG that crab legs and oxtails are commonly targeted items in shoplifting incidents at the grocery store.
