Thieves with stroller allegedly steal shark from San Antonio aquarium

Local reports say after tip-offs from the public helped police identify the truck in question, two of the three people allegedly involved confessed to their involvement in the heist. Salvaggio says two others are expected to be charged. The snatched shark has been recovered and returned to a petting tank.

The thieves, two men and a woman, took the 1.5ft (4.5m) horn shark from an open tank at the aquarium around 15:00. Another man is then seen depositing a blanket-wrapped item into a stroller and walking off, accompanied by the first man and a woman carrying a child.

She said the bleach solution might have shocked the shark's system.

"We are offering a reward for any tips that lead to the recovery of this animal", the aquarium said, without specifying what the reward would be.
