Man admits stealing snakes from pet shop
Detectives probing the theft of numerous exotic pets, including a bearded dragon and tarantula, from a pet shop found CCTV footage of a man with several snakes stuffed in a rucksack.

Green-haired animal collector Scott Goodison, 20, was seen sneaking out of Perth Pet Centre after helping himself to three corn snakes.

A major police probe was launched in February this year after it emerged the store had been robbed and several exotic animals had been taken.

Police Scotland appealed to the public to be on the lookout for the missing animals, which included potentially harmful creatures, such as tarantula spiders as well as bearded dragon lizards.

At Perth’s Justice of the Peace court, Goodison, of St Catherine’s Road, Perth, admitted stealing three corn snakes from Perth Pet Centre on February 18.

He was charged with stealing reptiles, a spider, electrical equipment and money but the Crown accepted a reduced plea to the snakes only.

The court was told Goodison, who lives near the pet shop premises, had a number of “issues” and sentence was deferred for reports.

It is understood the snakes were recovered from Goodison’s home and had not suffered any ill-effect from being moved from the pet store.
