Florida Man Tries to Steal Baby Python in Pants

A Florida man is facing theft charges after he was caught trying to steal a baby python from a pet store … in his pants.

baby python, florida man, stolen snake, snake in pants, just happy to see me

Travis Treder of Pasco County, Florida, entered a St. Petersburg pet shop on Monday and asked to see the snakes.

But Florida pet store owners are apparently used to this behavior. This time around, the guy stuffed a baby python into the front pocket of his pants, and employees immediately jumped on the problem, even involving a customer to restrain the snake thief until cops arrived.

Despite the long snake in his pants, Treder wasn’t “happy to see them”
