Shark likely to die after Texans steal it from San Antonio aquarium in a stroller

A shark police say was snatched from a petting tank at the San Antonio Aquarium and wheeled out in a baby stroller is back home alive, and investigators say a person confessed to the deed.

The two men and one woman later left the attraction allegedly with a stolen gray horn shark called Miss Helen in tow. They got away in a pickup truck, which was recovered Monday evening.

A group of "well-trained" thieves stole a shark from the San Antonio aquarium in a stroller - and are still on the lam. Miraculously, the shark was found unharmed by the police later and has now been returned to the San Antonio Aquarium. The next step, he said, is to acclimate "Ms. Helen" into the water.

Chief Salvaggio said one man had been charged over the heist and two other people were expected to be charged.

If you're picturing the shark tucked into a damp blanky and wearing a bonnet as she was wheeled past security guards, the truth of the matter isn't quite that evocative - but it's almost as unlikely.

Posts on the aquarium's official Facebook page said the theft was spotted by an employee who alerted management.

A European Union team monitored the balloting and its leader Michael Gahler said, "Overall, the election results are credible". He added later: "The credibility or the legitimacy of this process, that is for the people of Pakistan ".

Salvaggio added that local law enforcement is working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to see whether the theft involves federal charges.

An employee witnessed these freaky antics and immediately told aquarium managers.

An aquarium employee attempted to stand up to the man in the parking lot, insisting he open the trunk of his truck.

Police confirmed that a 38-year-old man was arrested on Monday night in connection with the theft, the Daily Mail reported. He seemingly abandoned the woman and other man seen in the video.

"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.

Surveillance video taken at about 2 p.m. captures a man leaning over into the exhibit and emerging with the shark in a net. Police said did not immediately take her into custody because she has kids.
