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.

Local artist Jim Wheat spotted the scene and took a photo, saying he initially thought the dog was a bear because it was so big.

“It was like a dog on a treadmill,” he said.
