OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha pet store owner says his stolen snakes have been returned.

Don Everson told Omaha television station WOWT (https://bit.ly/28SysYa ) Thursday that the eight ball pythons all seemed to be in good health. They and several frozen rats were taken from his store last Friday. The loss was estimated at around $18,000.

Everson told police he thought he recognized the thief on security video. The man lives in Harlan, Iowa, and had visited the store several times over the past six months. Officers went to see the man, which led to the snakes’ return.

The man’s name hasn’t been released. It’s unclear whether he’s been charged.
