A 38-year-old man was arrested, voluntarily interviewed and a community resolution was agreed by the victim.

The teenage tortoise was located following searches on the offender’s mobile phone which revealed the family pet was sold to a woman locally.

PC Dean Fenton said: “The family is clearly delighted and it’s great to have a happy ending after some great work by local officers.

Obviously family pets are really sentimental, so it was fantastic to see smiles back on the families’ faces after a stressful time.”
