8:57am Friday 25th October 2013 in News
A VULNERABLE tortoise stolen from a Southampton reptile centre was still missing last night.
The reptile, similar to the one pictured, is called Star and could die within hours unless it is kept in specific conditions. It was pinched from Southampton Reptile Centre in Deacon Road, Bitterne on Tuesday.
Police are continuing their investigations in tracing a man pictured on CCTV placing his hand in the Indian tortoise’s cage and putting it inside his body warmer pocket.
The man is described as being relatively tall with short brown hair.
He was wearing jeans and a grey jumper under a blue and red body warmer and was with a group of other men aged 18- 21.
Anyone with information should contact Luke O’Shea at Southampton Central’s Western Area Crime Desk on 101.
