Man sought for trying to ship live lizards out of the country from Dedham

Lizard man

The US Fish and Wildlife Service is hunting a man it says tried to ship live lizards to Trinidad and Tobago from a FedEx office in Dedham in July.

The suspect declared the contents as "Household appliances". This package was later intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers in Puerto Rico after an inspection revealed various live reptiles hidden inside. This activity was in violation of the Endangered Species Act.

If Lizard Man looks familiar, contact Fisheries and Wildlife investigator James Dowd at 617-889-6616.

I would have thought they had plenty of lizards already.

Leave reptiles which aren't threatening you the (expletive) alone.

We have crystal clear pictures of Mars, down to the most minute detail. Yet our security cameras at our borders give us that pic?!

OP makes reference to a fedex office, not "the border" - he was trying to ship the goods, not carry 'em. I'm guessing it was some surveillance camera, but no way of knowing where.

Our borders are everywhere.

Fedex stores do not typically purchase or install the same sort of cameras that are used by NASA.
