FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A Central California science museum has recovered three of four reptiles stolen in a burglary caught on surveillance video, and arrested a suspect in the heist.

The Discovery Center's education coordinator Ian Goudelock says a 3 1/2-foot savannah monitor lizard, red-tailed boa constrictor and a ball python are back at the Fresno museum on Friday. A 3-foot-long ball python remains missing.

The suspect broke into the museum on Wednesday night or Thursday morning, smashed the tanks that held the four reptiles and made off with them in a garbage bag. The suspect also went into the center's gift shop and stole children's toys, the phone system and the security monitor.

Fresno police says they made an arrest on suspicion of the burglary, but the suspect's name was not immediately available.
