LOMA LINDA – An unknown woman and man stole two well-loved and well-known pets from a home on Friday evening.
At around 5:00 p.m. two suspects, a Hispanic man and woman, went to the home in the 11300 block of Campus Avenue in Loma Linda driving a large, later model, blue and white pickup truck with dual rear axles. The suspects went to the patio of the home and removed 2 large bird cages, each containing a bird. The birds in the cages, a large African Grey Parrot who responds to the name “Fred” and 1 large Cockatoo who responds to the name “Ghost”, have belonged to the victims for over 20 years and lived in the neighborhood for over 15 years.
