The LA Times has a video of a “snake jacking” – a couple went into a pet store and stole a python in plain view (you can see the guy literally pocket the snake). “They did it so boldly,” says the proprietor of Serpentorium, the Northern California pet store. There’s a $100 reward for the snake, but if the thieves return the snake on their own, the proprietor says he won’t press charges.
