Gilbert police rescue runaway tortoise; searching for owner

Posted July 14

— The Gilbert Police Department is searching for the owners of this not-so-little guy.

In a Facebook post, police shared this photo and said that this '"tortoise certainly is faster than a hare."

The runaway (well, he certainly wasn't running!) tortoise was found Thursday morning, wandering near Velero Street and Cayman Drive in Gilbert.

Officers Zamora and Fisher rescued the tortoise and are now looking for its owner.

The tortoise does not have a microchip.

If you have any information, please contact the Gilbert Police Department's non-emergency number at 480-503-6500.
