Initial records show it appeared someone attempted to make it into the store through a back door.

There also was a window that was partially busted, records showed.

A store employee declined to release any surveillance footage as police detectives were still reviewing it.

It’s not clear how many reptiles were reportedly stolen from the pet store.
