BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Authorities say a Gulfport man was arrested this week after he tried to sell oysters on Facebook without a dealer’s license.

The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources says in a news release that 22-year-old Quintinn Miller was arrested after he tried to sale the oysters to undercover MDMR officers.

Miller was released on $2,500 bond. He will be in court on March 4. It is not known if he has an attorney.

Authorities say Miller offered two quarts of oysters for $30 each and one bucket of unshucked oysters for $25.

Miller is charged with possession of misbranded shell stock, unrefrigerated shell stock, untagged shell stock, no dealer license and providing false information to law enforcement.

The charges are misdemeanors. Each count carries a penalty of $100 to $500.
