CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – Police in Clearwater, Florida have arrested a man after he was caught on camera stealing exotic fish from a pet shop.

Detectives say Cruz Garcia Jr. entered Pet Safari on January 9 with his accomplice, Crystal Dixon, and stole Electric Blue Acaras and Blue Ram Cichlids.

“I could see the two of them over here, kind of looking out towards me,” said store clerk Kayla Kraut.

Kraut was behind the register that day when she said the two came in the store acting fishy.

Kraut said Dixon quickly distracted her while Garcia Jr. worked to net and bag the fish.

With nowhere else to stash the bag, he shoved the fish down his pants.

Kraut said both then made their way to the door.
