Arlington police seek bird stolen in business burglary

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Call it the case of the purloined parrot.

Arlington police on Monday announced the search for a macaw named Captain Jack, a talkative pet bird stolen during a burglary.

The owner of Sunrise Automotive, 3217 E Pioneer Pkwy., called police on Nov. 15 to report thieves broke into his business. The crooks stole some tools, a vehicle — and the bird.

Arlington police say the vehicle was discovered abandoned the next day in Fort Worth but Captain Jack, who lived at the shop, hasn’t been found.

Police say owner Bill Salmon considers his brightly colored parrot the mascot for the business and would really like Captain Jack back.

Crime Stoppers has offered a reward of up to $1,000 leading to recovery of the parrot.
