Video: Portland Thief Shoves Python Down His Pants

Police are on the lookout for a man who walked into a southeast Portland pet store and stuck a 2-foot-long python down his pants.

Store owner Christin Bjugan says video surveillance from Friday’s theft has helped viewers and police identify a suspect, and she expects to have the $200 snake returned soon. She says it was “pretty gutsy” for the thief to put the python down his pants, and potentially a bad move because it was close to feeding day.

Police Sgt. Greg Stewart says the department has investigated thefts at pet stores, but this is the first time it has involved someone putting a snake in their pants.
