SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- (KABB) -- Surveillance video shows three suspects inside a San Antonio aquarium steal a horn shark, then disguise the shark as a baby in a stroller.

Leon Valley Police Chief Joseph Salvaggio said Monday two suspects confessed to stealing a horn shark from the San Antonio Aquarium. Salvaggio said the horn shark was returned to the aquarium in "very good condition." The next step, he said, is to acclimate "Ms. Helen" into the water.

Authorities used the license plate of the truck to locate one of the suspects. Officials found the horn shark "thriving" in the home, because it appeared the suspects had experience working with these animals.

The suspects are facing charges for theft between $750 and $2,000. A possible shark theft suspect posted on Facebook selling the horn shark for $300: "Selling a horn shark, perfect for the next shark week. Alive and well just took out of tank for a quick pic"
