FENWICK ISLAND, Del.- Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Agents have cited a 70-year-old Selbyville man for crabbing violations.

Ronald T. Cagle Sr. was charged with two counts of commercial crabbing for blue crabs without a Delaware commercial crabbing license and possession of undersized blue crabs, and three counts of over the limit crab pots and improperly marked crab pots.

The May 24 citations were in connection with an investigation into illegally harvested blue crabs, according to Senior Cpl. Carl Winckoski of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement. Winckoski also noted that a Delaware commercial license is required for anyone harvesting crabs from Delaware waters, and that seafood sellers are required to obtain blue crabs legally from a licensed commercial crabber.

Cagle pleaded guilty to all charges in Justice of the Peace Court 3 in Georgetown and paid fines and court costs totaling $360, Winckoski added.
