Students banned for stealing spiders worth $500 from Lakeside store


Two college students are banned from a Lakeside business after stealing $500 worth of spiders. They will also spend time behind bars.

Deion Terrell Dickens and Charles Benjamin Johnson III will do a month in jail on weekends, and will pay hundreds of dollars in court costs and restitution.

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the two broke into Lakeside's Beasts and Bugs Shop and took King Baboon Tarantulas back in February.

Their lawyers convinced the judge to reduce their felony charges to misdemeanors, because the two students are about to graduate.
