Play associated audio

A dozen exotic animals are now missing after the second break-in at a West Baltimore nature center. Police say someone came into the Carrie Murray Nature Center through an unlocked window overnight and stole two chameleons.

Over the weekend, 10 exotic animals were taken from the nature center. They include an iguana, two geckos, six turtles and a Madagascar hissing cockroach.

The alarm system at the center is not working.

Investigators believe someone who works or volunteers at the center and is familiar with its operations could be responsible for the thefts.

The city-run facility is named for the mother of baseball great Eddie Murray. Staffers run educational programs and rehabilitate injured birds.
