The branch manager of a penny market had discovered the crawling animal Tuesday morning when opening a banana box. The branch manager immediately sounded the alarm Because he suspected that it could be a poisonous banana spider that had flown in with the fruit, he immediately sounded the alarm. The problem: When the fire department arrived, the animal could no longer be found. The branch was therefore closed for security reasons in consultation with the magistrate.
