Like, for example, how do you steal a shark in a stroller and NOT GET CAUGHT RIGHT AWAY?

Along with the description “The 16-inch-long horn shark was stolen from our tide pool exhibit while the attendant was assisting other guests. The suspects staked out the pool for more than an hour to wait for this opportunity,” the San Antonio Aquarium posted this video of the suspects who stole the shark.

This is a video of the suspects. This is linking to the earlier post about the Horn Shark that was stolen from the San Antonio Aquarium.


Being that the shark was on the smaller side, Cosmopolitan says that the thieves put the shark in a bucket, and then placed the bucket in the stroller, covered. The story notes that the shark, who is named Miss Helen, was returned to the aquarium on Monday, and one of the thieves were caught and charged, and the other two will be charged as well.

It’s unclear if these people were looking to steal the shark and then sell it, or if they had different plans for the shark, but it just blows my mind. Who thinks “You know what would be a great idea? Let’s go to the aquarium and steal a shark!”
