HIALEAH, Fla., April 21 (UPI) -- The owner of a Florida smoke shop said four reptiles are missing after a car that crashed into the store set the reptiles free.

The owner of the Smoke N Toke Lounge in Hialeah said a woman looking for something in her vehicle crashed through the glass storefront Wednesday and the crash damaged multiple glass enclosures containing various exotic snakes and lizards.


"DON'T MISS OUT ON SMOKE N TOKE SALES ALL DAY! This woman couldn't wait," the store joked in the caption of a Facebook photo showing the damage.

The owner said workers rounded up the animals after making sure the woman and a child in her car weren't injured, but four of the pets remained on the loose.

The reptiles are not dangerous to humans, the owner said.
