Shark stolen from Texas aquarium by thieves with baby stroller

Thieves with stroller allegedly steal shark from San Antonio aquarium

"When we first got the call we thought it was kind of a hoax being that it was Shark Week [an annual event during which programming on the Discovery channel centres on sharks] last week", Leon Valley police chief Joseph Salvaggio told KSAT TV.

The bucket the men used to transfer the shark into the lower carriage of the stroller was taken from a backroom in the aquarium, and contained bleach, which could be lethal to the animal.

According to KSAT, they were able to track down the truck involved and now have one person of interest in custody.

"It was something he wanted, he had one of these in the past", said Salvaggio.

Salvaggio says the truck used in the heist was recovered Monday evening. The shark was returned home safe on Monday.

The other suspects will be charged at a later stage. As police swooped on the house, they discovered the shark, visibly well and unharmed, swimming in a tank in the man's garage.

By recording his then-client, Trump , Cohen "destroyed himself as a witness" in federal investigations. And that direct line between Russian interference and the president has never been proved before.

"SAPD confirmed that there is a suspect in custody who has given a confession and says the shark is still alive", Spellman said.

An aquarium employee attempted to stand up to the man in the parking lot, insisting he open the trunk of his truck. He refused to let Spellman search the vehicle and drove away. Two men and a woman with a infant wandered through the facility with a baby stroller in tow. "The 16-inch-long horn shark was stolen from our tide pool exhibit while the attendant was assisting other guests", wrote the aquarium in a Facebook post shared nine hours ago.

"The individual obviously had some knowledge on how to deal with these types of animals, we said that from the very beginning, otherwise why take it?"

The man, according to police, allowed them to enter his home and pointed them to where the shark was being kept.

"He had had one of these in the past", Salvaggio said. "I think the animal had died sometime in the past". It shared surveillance video of the crime unfolding. She said she told him she had seen water leaking from the baby stroller.
