Polly wants a savior!
Some lowlife snuck into the exotic-bird room at a Williamsburg pet store and swiped a colorful South American parrot on Tuesday, authorities said.
The suspect entered the Petland shop at 92 Graham Avenue at 5 pm and slipped into to its glass-enclosed room full of non-native birds, cops said, before grabbing the hapless blue Quaker parrot from its cage and stuffing the thing in his pocket, surveillance footage shows.
The alleged animal thief then fled the store with the winged creature, which is native to parts of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay.
Police described the suspect as a male between 25 and 35-years-old.
Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcr
