Emerald Crab gone rogue

I picked up a couple of emerald crabs last week, and caught one of them eating my zoas last night. I ran over and tried to catch him, but that sucker is fast and hid in my rockwork. I'm thinking I might have to set up a trap of some kind--anybody got any suggestions?

Yes put a glass with some meaty items in the bottom and tilt it on the rocks so he can walk down to get the food but cant walk back up and out. Works every time.
