Stolen Exotic Animals Recovered

Two geckos, an iguana and a hissing cockroach are back home along with other exotic animals stolen from a Baltimore nature center.

Police said the creatures, which also included two chameleons and six turtles, were recovered unharmed Tuesday from a home near the Carrie Murray Nature Center.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said detectives received a tip from a resident who reported seeing juveniles carrying the animals into a house. Investigators had suspected an inside job because the center's alarm had been turned off during break-ins over the weekend and Monday night, but found the thieves got in through an unlocked window and rear door.

The police spokesman said charges had not been filed yet in the case, but investigators were talking to people in the home.
