KENOSHA (WKOW) -- Kenosha police are investigating a case involving a stolen tortoise. 

The 40 pound, 80-year-old African Sucata tortoise has a tan shell and a crack on its lower jaw.  It's said to be worth an estimated $4,000.

Officials say the tortoise was taken from a front yard in the 4700 block of 8th Avenue while it was eating grass.  They say someone may have thought it was loose and just grabbed it. 

Reported in the area was a white male in a brown Pontiac Bonneville.  Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call Detective Correa at 262-605-5241.
