PHOENIX (AP) - Police say an Arizona man stole several baby albino boa constrictors at a pet store by stuffing them down his pants.
Eric Fiegel was arrested Tuesday after police reviewed surveillance footage from Predator's Reptile Center in Mesa. They say a July 30 video shows the 22-year-old man entering the store, removing several snakes from their cage and placing them in his pants before exiting the store without paying.
Police say Fiegel then traveled to another pet store and allegedly traded several of the snakes for $175 and a large reptile tank.
The Arizona Republic says a witness obtained a license plate number which police used to locate Fiegel. He was later identified by witnesses from a police lineup.
It was unclear Wednesday whether Fiegel has a lawyer.
