A surveillance camera caught a bizarre and potentially dangerous pet store heist in Michigan.

Turns out a Michigan man decided he wanted a snake but didn't want to pay for it, so he decided to stash it somewhere surprising.

Footage from the I Love Pets store's surveillance camera shows the man grabbing the snake, which was nicknamed Noodle, and stuff it into his pants before walking out the door.

So far, the man seems to have gotten away with it. Police haven't made any arrests, and there has been no sign of Noodle.

And it goes without saying, but it's definitely not a good idea to try this one on your own.
