They then ducked into a filter room and emptied out a bleach bucket, into which they deposited the shark, the aquarium said.
The man, who police have not named, was one of three people people captured on surveillance video stealing the shark using a stroller by disguising the shark as a baby.
Describing the heist to the media, Spellman said the bucket had originally contained a 5 percent bleach solution, leading aquarium officials to worry for Ms. Helen's health.
