Thieves stole hundreds of dollars worth of stuff from a Metro East pet store while employees weren’t looking.

Matt Smallheer, the owner of the Tye-Dyed Iguana in Fairview Heights, told News 4 one of the thieves was a regular customer who used that to her advantage. He also said the two suspects were in the store for nearly 45 minutes and took stuff while employees weren’t looking.

The owner said the male suspect has already been taken into custody and the woman is expected to turn herself into police Thursday.
