Shark stolen from San Antonio Aquarium is rescued, returned; 1 arrested

The shark is loaded into the stroller

Police confirmed that a 38-year-old man was arrested on Monday night in connection with the theft, the Daily Mail reported.

On Saturday, a man plucked the shark from a tank at the Aquarium, quickly wrapped it in a blanket, put it in a bucket filled with a bleach solution, then put it into a baby carriage, according to BBC News. The men put the shark in the bucket and stashed it on the stroller to make their getaway.

Once outside, they loaded the shark into a pick-up truck and drove straight off.

According to police, the suspect allowed police to enter the home and pointed them to where the shark was.

Video of the aqua-themed heist was released by the aquarium on Monday.

The San Antonio Aquarium later expressed hope that the small shark would "recover fully from the shock, and return to her home she is used to".

According to reports a new online posting offers an "alive and well" horn shark for sale at $300 but it is not yet clear whether the advert is linked to the heist.

The shark and stroller were placed in a 4-door maroon Chevrolet Silverado truck, police say.

"They staked out that exhibit waiting for the employee to leave", Covino said.

The man who reached into the tank and pulled out the shark, as seen in the video, was arrested.

"There were different marine animals", Leon Valley Police Chief Joseph Salvaggio said during a press conference.

Police said a mock-up aquarium was uncovered at the suspect's house.

Police found the three suspects Monday night and returned Miss Helen to the aquarium. "Obviously, he likes those types of animals". Apparently the suspects had experience working with these animals.

"I guess it's pretty hardy animal, but we're putting it in quarantine to see how it does", he said.

Authorities are speaking with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to determine whether any federal charges can be filed, Salvaggio said.
