Animals nabbed from Md. nature center

By the Associated Press

Baltimore police are looking for a gecko, an iquana and several other exotic animals taken from a city-run nature center.

The theft occurred sometime over the weekend. According to a police report, an employee at the Carrie Murray Nature Center found the doors unlocked Monday morning and several animals missing.

Besides the iguana, two geckos, six turtles and a Madagascar hissing cockroach were taken, along with other items.

Police say they don't have any suspects. There were no signs of forced entry, and because of the remote location of the nature center, police don't believe there were any witnesses. The facility is inside Leakin Park in west Baltimore.

The nature center boasts an insect zoo, live reptiles and amphibians and a hawk house.

I heard the Gecko was last seen near M&T stadium trying to peddle car insurance to people. Ha ha ha .
