DERBY, Pa., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania pet shop released security footage of an unidentified thief stealing a $600 python by shoving it inside his shirt.

The Tails & Scales store released a pair of security videos on its Facebook page showing the bearded suspect take the rare leucistic ball python, which sports white coloring and blue eyes, and shove it up his shirt before walking out of the Derby store.


The footage dates from Dec. 22 but was released last week in the hope of identifying the thief. The store said the snake, which was born during the summer, is worth about $600.

The Facebook posts said the owners of the store will not press charges if the snake is returned unharmed.
