ALLEN PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) — A 22-year-old Dearborn Heights man is about to find out just how much stealing two ferrets is going to cost him now that people who saw surveillance video of him posted to Facebook have identified him.

The two ferrets were stolen from The Critter Shop Thursday as workers were busy helping customers.

The suspect is seen on surveillance video walking in and going straight to the cage of ferrets. He looks around to make sure the coast is clear before stuffing two ferrets under his clothes.

A customer notified workers of the suspicious man after he walked out of the store with a bulge under his shirt.

Chris Borus and one of his coworkers at the pet shop posted the surveillance video on Facebook and it didn't take long for people to identify the man and his Facebook page.
