Snakes on a High-rise

A man was bitten by a poisonous snake in his apartment in Tokyo. He was bitten as he tried to feed it. It and 50 others just like it. Tokyo police arrested the man for illegally keeping 51 poisonous cobras and mambas in his apartment. The disturbing quote comes at the end of the article:

The police spokesman could not say where the snakes have been moved.

Could not? The police don’t know where the 51 illegal poisonous snakes went? I think (I hope) the reporter meant to say the spokesman “would not” say. “Could not” implies something else.
