The Facebook page of Bart’s Exotic Pets shows a variety of reptiles, including numerous ball pythons.
 

Store owner Don Everson said he has surveillance video of the burglary. The thief needed just a bit more than 90 seconds to get in, steal the reptiles and $1,500 in frozen rats, and get out, but Everson says he believes he knows who the culprit is.

“I’m pretty sure that I know who it was,” Everson told the World Herald News Service. “The police have the surveillance video, and I intend to press charges.”
