HOMESTEAD, FLA. (WSVN) - Two large tortoises were allegedly stolen from a family business in Homestead, and the owners are asking for the public’s help to get them back.
According to the owners of Phil’s Berry Farm in Homestead, tortoises Dots and Speedy were taken from a mini petting zoo on the property, Friday night.
“We have a little tiny petting area,” said business owner Philip Marraccini, “and missing now are my two tortoises.”
Both tortoises weigh over 60 pounds, but thieves still managed to get away with them in the middle of the night.
The business, located near Southwest 248th Street and Coconut Palm Drive, is frequented by customers and students on school tours.
The owners took to social media and contacted Miami-Dade Police. They are willing to provide a reward for whoever can help them locate Dots and Speedy.
