Live Bird Stolen From Nittany Mall Pet Store

Update: 5:43 p.m. — Finally some good news.


Original Story:

The State College Police Department is investigating the theft of a live bird from Finatics Aquarium & Pet Store at the Nittany Mall.

Someone flew the coop with a Pineapple Green Cheek Conure around noon on Tuesday, February 6, according to a release issued by the police department. BirdBreeders.com lists Green Cheek Conures anywhere from $300 to $700.

The police have identified a suspect in the case based on surveillance tapes from inside the store. The woman is white, has shoulder-length or longer red hair, and “may have experience with bird handling” based on the video evidence. She was wearing a black winter coat with its hood up in the surveillance tapes.

You can give the State College Police Department any information on the investigation — which is still active — via an anonymous tip on the department’s website or by email to [email protected].

He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
