Man Charged in Second Snake Theft Case

by on April 05, 2014 8:15 AM

A Milesburg man who's already in trouble for stealing several exotic snakes is hit with additional charges stemming from a second snake theft investigation.

According to prosecutors, Nathan Flick, 20, and two accomplices stole three snakes from the Petco store in Patton Township, last month. The three snakes, valued at $939.97, were later recovered in Mill Hall.

Flick is charged with two counts of retail theft and one count of receiving stolen property in that case.

A preliminary hearing will be held on April 30. The District Attorney's Office says it will address Flick's bail following that proceeding.

On Friday, Flick pleaded guilty to burglary charges after 13 snakes were stolen from a trailer in Union Township. Prosecutors say Flick and two co-defendants grabbed 13 Ball Python Morph snakes that are worth $30,000.

Several of the snakes were pregnant females. According to prosecutors, Flick tried to sell the snakes at a reptile show in Hamburg, Pa.

In a prepared statement, District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller says, "It appears as if the Defendant doesn't get it, and labors under some misguided belief that snake snatching is a sensible undertaking. We will address his perplexing thought process and his undesirable behavior with the Court."
