Springfield Police say five snakes and two geckos were stolen, along with laptop computers and aquarium filters,  in a break-in at a Springfield pet store over the weekend.  Police say the intruder or intruders gained entry by breaking a window.  The alarm company was notified, but police say they were not called at the time of the break-in,   around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

A pastel boa constrictor,  a Kenyon sand python, carpet python, a corn snake and an albino corn snake, and two leopard  geckos were taken in the burglary at “Dave’s Soda and Pet Food City”  at 1330 Carew Street.
