Tortoises captured after slow pursuit

Posted: Updated:
It may not have been a high-speed pursuit, but Mesa Police captured a pair of runaway tortoises on Sunday morning.

A spokesman for Mesa Police says a neighbor reported seeing two desert tortoises crawling along the road about 8 a.m. near 32nd Street and McKellips on Sunday.  He says officers quickly responded and captured the two reptiles.

The two had reportedly escaped from a nearby home, and a relative of the family helped to take them into a custody.
