Detectives are seeking the public’s help in locating two exotic birds that were snatched from a pet store in Southern California last month.
Cleo, a citron-crested cockatoo, and Yoda, a Goffin’s cockatoo, were stolen on the night of Jan. 25 from High Country Feed & Pets in Palmdale, about 65 miles north of Los Angeles, according to a bulletin from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Palmdale Station.
Surveillance cameras captured the moment the thieves broke into the store hours after it had closed and took the feathered pair from their cages.
