On November 11, 2016, at approximately 5:00 pm, two unknown suspects went to the victim’s residence in a large pickup truck. The truck is described as a later model truck, blue and white in color, with dual rear wheel axles. The suspects approached the victim’s patio and removed 2 large bird cages containing the victim’s pet birds. The cages contained 1 large African Grey Parrot that responds to the name of “Fred” and 1 large Cockatoo that responds to the name of “Ghost.” The cages were cream and dark green in color, approximately 3 feet by 4 feet in size on pedestals with wheels. The suspects loaded the bird cages into the rear bed area of the pickup truck and fled the location. The birds have been fixtures of the neighborhood for over 15 years and have belonged to the victims for over 20 years. The pets were deeply loved by all who knew them and contacted daily by the students of the medical school.
