A 16-inch female horn shark named “Miss Helen” was taken during a heist at the San Antonio Aquarium that aquarium officials said was no spur-of-the-moment, let’s-steal-a-shark thing.
“The suspects staked out the pool for more than an hour” to wait for the right moment, the aquarium said in a statement. They proceeded to steal the shark by placing it in a baby stroller, then left the facility as water dripped behind them.
The search for the young female shark, led police Monday to the home of a man who maintains an extensive collection of marine life, according to the police chief of the San Antonio suburb where the aquarium is located. Miss Helen was safely returned to the aquarium Monday evening.
One man has been charged with theft and charges for two other individuals are pending.
Brings new meaning to the term “jumping the shark”…
