Suspected snake thief extradited from Indiana

KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) -- A man suspected of stealing snakes from a Kingsport pet store will be extradited from Indiana back to the Tri-Cities.

Police in Jeffersonville, Ind., arrested Ricky Reinhardt on Wednesday.

Kingsport police say he robbed the Pet Cove store on east Center Street last month and took more than just money.

A store clerk told police Reinhardt handcuffed her to the toilet, robbed the cash register and ran off with more than a dozen snakes.

Police did not release any information on the missing snakes.
