San Antonio Aquarium releases statement, video following shark theft

Police said a man reached into a salt water tank in the San Antonio Aquarium and grabbed the two-foot long baby horn shark.

Police say they were able to use the license plate of the truck driven from the scene to locate one of the suspects.

Fox News reported the suspects were initially confronted in the vehicle park and had denied a request to search their maroon truck - but had then been tracked to a residence where several marine animals were kept in "almost a mock-up" of the aquarium.

The incident unfolded on Saturday, when an employee spotted three people near an interactive shark touch pool, the aquarium said on Facebook.

When the men reappear on video, one of them is holding a bulky cloth-wrapped bundle under one arm, which he loads into a baby stroller.

Describing the heist to the media, Spellman said the bucket had originally contained a 5 percent bleach solution, leading aquarium officials to worry for Ms. Helen's health.

Salvaggio said that one of the men had knowledge of aquariums and likely went to the aquarium specifically for that shark.

Skywatchers looking forward to complete lunar eclipse
The long duration of this eclipse is partly due to the fact that the moon will make a near-central passage through Earth's umbra. Below is an interview with Daniel Cunnama , of the South African Astronomical Observatory about tonight's astronomical event.

Salvaggio said the arrest came after a day of investigating.

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. "And when we got into the garage and into the house, it looked like nearly a mock-up of (the aquarium)", he said.

The suspects could also face federal charges in connection with breaching regulations around transporting sharks.

An aquarium employee had noticed the abduction and had immediately alerted management.

The San Antonio Police Department told FOX7 on Monday one suspect was apprehended and officers are working on a warrant to retrieve the pilfered shark. One of the men wouldn't allow her to search his truck, claiming that his son was sick and drove off, leaving his companions behind in the parking lot.

Three people are seen in surveillance video from the San Antonio Aquarium.
