Never in my life would I put a real life snake in my fucking pants. Are you kidding me, it's like your asking to lose your nuts. Video of the attempted robbery attached in the blog.
WFLA - ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WFLA) — A man is facing theft charges after he tried to steal a snake from a pet store in St. Petersburg Monday.
Pinellas County deputies said Travis Treder went into Animal House Pet Center, located at 950 34th St. N, and put a baby python down his left front pocket.
Chaos erupted at the pet store as employees tried to stop him. “He’s been in twice before over the past nine months and we didn’t realize he stole anything until after the fact,” store owner Steve Silk said.
Surveillance video shows the suspect grab the snake from its enclosure and put it in his pants. Silk then confronts him.
“We waited on him for probably 15 minutes and then we went into the office to see what he was going to do, and sure enough, he targeted our higher-end snakes again,” Silk said. Silk also said Treder has stolen snakes and lizards on two separate occasions in the last nine months.
They’ve been on the lookout for him since. “This time we printed out pictures of him and put it behind our register,” Silk said.
Employees blocked the front entrance. A customer, who just so happened to be a security guard, jumped in to help.
Silk said he believes Treder may be selling the animals on Craigslist.
Fuck this guy. This is not only a stupid thing to fucking try and steal, but it's also one of the creepiest things to try and steal. Fuck snakes they're nasty. You would have to pay me an absolutely absurd amount of money to put a snake in my pants. Not even kidding I think I would charge over like 10 million just to put a gardner snake in my pants, and this dude was shoving a python down there. FUCK THAT. If anyone's interested what this douche looks like, here ya go.
I apologize for jumping to conclusions, this guy seems totally normal. He even looks like he's sorry for doing the crime. This is such a perfect mugshot for this crime. What a fucking creepy ass dude. Glad he's off the streets, hopefully this douche isn't dumb enough to go back to the same pet store next time he tries to steal a snake.
