Thieves steal tortoises from garden
Thieves broke into a garden and stole three tortoises from their enclosure, police said.
One male and two female tortoises were taken from the property in North Cerney in Gloucestershire.
Gloucestershire Police are investigating the theft, which happened between August 26 and 27.
A spokesman said: "The animals were taken from the house on Churnside between 3.30pm on Monday August 26 and 8am on Tuesday August 27.
"Offenders walked into the garden along the driveway. They then removed the one male and two female tortoises from their enclosure and left the garden. The animals are of significant sentimental value to the owner as they were a gift from his late wife."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Gloucestershire Police.
