“This is the first time we have to investigate this type of theft,” said Sherbrooke Police Service spokesman Martin Carrier.
The two suspects showed up at The Great Menagerie on King Street West on March 8th.
The woman, about 45 years old, who had a strong cigarette smell, and her accomplice of about 35 years, stole not only the lizard, but also various items to feed the reptile.
The value of the stolen merchandise is about $ 200.
“We have clear pictures of two suspects,” said the SPS spokesperson.
The male suspect has brown hair with baldness on his head and temples. He was wearing a brown beard. During the flight, he was wearing a green coat with a large logo on the back, dark blue jeans and work boots.
The woman was wearing a burgundy coat, white pants and black shoes. She has brown hair with pale locks.
