Travis Treder in St. Petersburg, Florida is facing theft charges after he tried to steal a baby python from the Animal House Pet Center by stuffing it in his pants.

Surveillance video shows employees confronting the suspect after he took the snake from its enclosure. Store owner Steve Silk said, "He’s been in twice before over the past nine months and we didn’t realize he stole anything until after the fact.

Silk believes that Treder may be selling the animals he steals on Craigslist.
