The great pigeon caper (Video)

Frame – 265By Mark Young, Managing Editor, May 30, 2015 – Chalk this caper up to one of the most bizarre robberies ever.

According to Miami-Dade Police, three men jumped over a chain link fence at 4595 SW 127th Avenue. At 1:00 AM they may have been confused with what they were about to steal – 150 pigeons. Yes, pigeons.  Three of the birds died during the theft.

Wait! What makes this even more bizarre, as if the originaal crime wasn’t enough. Three days later they RETURNED the pigeons!

There is surveillance video of the three crooks and the Miami-Dade Police are hoping someone can identify them. As the saying goes, “Only in Flori-DUH”

As always, anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact CrimeStoppers (305)471-TIPS (8477) or (866) 471-8477
