An accused reptile thief is due in court Thursday.
Detectives say 21-year-old Devin Madej broke into Fresno's Discovery Center and smashed up glass cases to steal multiple snakes and other reptiles.
Since the break-in, the museum is beefing up their security.
The center already had a video surveillance system, which recorded the thefts and helped lead to the arrest of Madej.
They have since added another alarm system and motion detectors.
Most of the reptiles have been recovered but a Ball Python taken during the burglary is still missing.
