DURHAM — N.H. Fish and Game says a Bedford man stole nearly 50 lobster traps from local waters, including some that belonged to a dead lobsterman. 
 
Kyle Basoukas, 21, faces a felony receiving stolen property charge for possessing 49 stolen lobster traps. He’s also charged with molesting lobster gear for allegedly interfering with lobster traps and equipment that was not his and taking lobsters in traps without appropriate tags. 
 
He faces an additional 130 lobster-related violations. 
 
“This case speaks to the livelihood of New Hampshire fishermen, especially New Hampshire lobstermen,” said Lt. Michael Eastman, who leads coastal law enforcement for N.H. Fish and Game, which has an office in Durham.
 
“This individual was going out and taking from other lobstermen. Not only taking from living lobsterman, but he actually stole from a deceased lobsterman thinking that was OK.”
