Teens charged in Md. center animal thefts

By Associated Press

Baltimore police say two brothers, ages 14 and 11, have been charged as juveniles with stealing a dozen exotic animals from a city-run nature center.

Police spokesman Officer Nicole Monroe says the boys will face charges including theft and breaking and entering. They have been released to their parents’ custody.

The animals were taken in separate thefts at the Carrie Murray Nature Center. They included an iguana, geckos, chameleons, turtles and a Madagascar hissing cockroach. They were recovered and returned to the center Tuesday.

Maybe these boys are the ones who should be living behind bars!

Didn't think they were "children" as reported earlier.
