The “snake thief” slips into a California salon and steals $ 8000

Riverside – Police were looking for a man named “Snake Thief” who made his way through the Riverside Saloon and escaped with several thousand dollars.

Surveillance video showed the man slipping on his stomach at Rustic Roots Salon, 10246 Indiana Ave. in Riverside, around 5 a.m. on Friday, November 26, after apparently getting into work through a rooftop fire exit.

“It gave me goosebumps in the spine,” owner Laurie Hajj told KNBC-TV.

Al-Hajj says the thief she calls a “snake thief” stole hundreds of dollars worth of products, cash from the register and a safe with more than $8,000 inside.

A security guard who was installing a new alarm system in the saloon told KNBC-TV that the fraudster was successfully trying to avoid the motion sensor.

The station said the same man may have tried to rob other businesses before, including a local pizza parlor where a security video showed a man crawling on his stomach.
