Hey, is that a Tortoise in your pants or are you just happy to be stealing?

Last Sunday evening two baby Sulcata Tortoises made a quick get away, in the back pockets of thief.  This happed around 6:15 P.M. on August 15th at Lou's Pet Shop in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan.

Lou's Pet Shop reached out to the public asking for help finding these adorable hard shell reptiles with a Facebook post showing a picture of the suspect from their security cameras.  Within 12 hours they got their babies back,

The security footage from Lou's Pet Shop showed two suspects.  The male suspect allegedly placed a baby turtle in each of his back pockets and then he walked out of the pet show with the female suspect.

The owner of Lou's Pet Shop, Donnie Cook, told Grosse Pointe News that they quickly got the two baby tortoises back and they looked healthy and well taken care of.  Everybody knows that turtles love pizza.  #TurtlePower
