WESTMINSTER, Md., July 28 (UPI) -- A Maryland man convicted of theft for taking a tarantula from a library was sentenced to 90 days in jail for the crime and 4 years for violating his probation.

Randy Humple, 27, of Westminster, was sentenced Monday in Carroll County Circuit Court to 90 days for the May theft of the tarantula from the Westminster branch of the Carroll County Public Library and another incident a few days later when police found marijuana in his sock at the time of his arrest, the Carroll County Times reported Wednesday.

Humple was also sentenced by Judge J. Barry Hughes to 4 years in prison for violating his probation from a 2007 assault case. Hughes said the sentences will run concurrently.
