TRIBECA — Aw, shucks.
A thief stole several boxes of oysters, clams and mussels from the back of a TriBeCa delivery truck, walking off with hundreds of dollars in shellfish, police said.
A deliveryman was making a food drop-off at cocktail bar Weather Up, at 159 Duane St. near Hudson Street, when the thief swiped containers holding 100 oysters, more than 100 clams and 30 mussels, from the open, parked van, at about 11 a.m on Jan. 12.
The thief, who took the $309 dollars in seafood, rolled the stolen boxes off on a dolly he'd also lifted from the truck, police said.
A representative for Weather Up was not immediately available for comment.
Police were still investigating the theft as of Tuesday morning.
