So it came as a shock when someone swiped one of her rarest reptiles. “He stole our $200black pastel ball python.”
After getting the call Friday that the snake was gone, Christin spent the better part of her Saturday reviewing surveillance footage. “There’s cameras everywhere, and you’d think that people would see them,” said Bjugan.
When she spotted the suspected snake thief on film, She was even more surprised to see what he does after he reaches in the snake tank.
“Then you’ll see him put it in his pants. Yuck. Just drops it right in the front.”
A short time later, he waddles out.
Christin says she’s seen this man in her shop before. But this time he was with a blue-haired woman, who seemed to be in on the theft.
“Anytime anything like this happens, it’s very frustrating because we work very hard to run the business and make a living.”
“He’s lucky it wasn’t feeding day, feeding days are on Mondays. And they’re very hungry.”
The pet store owner says that if and when police find the suspect, she would like to see charges filed.
