Clearwater police have arrested a man for shoving exotic fish down his pants and stealing them from the Pet Safari pet store while his accomplice distracted the cashier. 

Kayla Kraut, the cashier at the time, says the couple was acting fishy from the moment they walked in.

The accomplice asked random questions, while her man netted and bagged up the fish he wanted and put them all in his pants.

When they went to leave, the thief pointed at a tank and said there was a cool fish in there and ran away.
