Man seen in surveillance video stealing peacock from Miami neighborhood
MIAMI (WSVN) - An unknown man in a South Florida is literally ruffling feathers after he was seen stealing peacocks.
Surveillance video shows the suspect’s burgundy pickup truck driving through the Coconut Grove neighborhood where peacocks were hanging out on Sunday morning. He is seen wearing a red T-shirt, with a cigarette in his mouth, as he walked onto Virginia Jasper’s driveway.
“He came onto my property,” she told WSVN. “He went onto my porch. Very disturbing.”
The video then shows the unknown man attempted to grab peacocks, and eventually runs across the sidewalk with a peacock tucked under his arm. He fled in his truck.
Miami police are investigating the incident as a possible animal cruelty case.
