New York Department of Environmental Conservation officers have arrested a former Passamaquoddy tribal representative to Maine's Legislature and seven other people on charges of illegally harvesting baby eels from a creek on Long Island's East End.

Frederick J. Moore III, of Perry, and others surrendered April 8 2014. Authorities charged them with lacking a foodfish permit, over the limit possession of American eels, and over the limit possession of undersized eels, all felonies.

DEC officers observed the men illegally harvesting a "large amount" of elvers on March 28, a DEC spokeswoman said.

The DEC also charged the men with conspiracy to commit a crime, a misdemeanor, and using an illegal eel trap, a violation.
