Dwayne Melton keeps 18 tarantulas in a crawl space in his home where they are hibernating for the winter, but he recently discovered that 5 of them were missing.
Note to self: never visit Dwayne.
AniMart Pets, a local exotic pet store in Georgia, called to say that someone had just brought in the stolen spiders and sold them for $60.
The shop thought the creatures might be his, because they were the ones who sold him them in the first place.
A man named Brandon L. Davis was arrested for the crime, and Melton's spiders are now also locked up for protection.
