A US man has been arrested for stealing exotic snakes from a pet shop - by hiding them down his shorts. Eric Fiegel was allegedly caught on camera trying to smuggle five snakes from a store in Mesa, Arizona. The 22-year-old wandered round the store for about an hour with the snakes stuffed down his shorts before leaving, the shops owner said. Christian Kaleta said: He hangs out here for an hour with the animals in his pockets he doesnt just take off with them he hangs around. Really bold. Who steals a snake of all things? One of the snakes allegedly stolen by Fiegel was a rare baby albino boa constrictor, worth about 500, reports the Arizona Republic. Police say Fiegel took the snakes to another pet store where he traded some of them for cash and a large reptile tank. ON
