MIAMI (AP) - Miami-Dade police investigators want to know who took more than 500 canaries from an elderly man.
Police on Wednesday asked the public for help in identifying the suspects. They say the men entered home of 87-year-old Manuel Sanchez on May 27 and took the birds, which are valued at $30 each. The next day, they sold the birds to three pet shops.
Authorities say images of the suspects were captured by video surveillance cameras.
Police were able to recover about 150 birds.
Anyone with information about the thefts is urged to call CrimeStoppers.
