More than 400 pounds of fresh fish and crab was stolen over the  weekend from a fishery at Pillar Point Harbor in San Mateo County, sheriff's  officials said.
    Sometime between 7 p.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. on Monday, suspects  entered Morningstar Fisheries at 3 Johnson Pier near Half Moon Bay and stole  the seafood, which had been packaged for delivery to a restaurant, San Mateo  County Sheriff Lt. Larry Schumaker said.

    The haul was estimated to be worth more than $2,100, Schumaker  said.     The stolen seafood included 198 pounds of halibut, 86 pounds of  flounder, 150 pounds of crab, and 10 pounds of sand sole.
    There were no suspects as of Tuesday afternoon.
    The case remains under investigation.
