WEST ALLIS — West Allis police are continuing to ask the public for leads after a parrot named Tiki was stolen from a local pet store three years ago.

The police department explained in a social media post Monday that they publicized the incident after the parrot was reported stolen in 2017. While they received a few leads, they still could not identify the suspect, or locate Tiki, at the time.

But now, a new lead was developed. The department says they have learned about a second suspect being involved in the theft.

"Due to the new information about a second suspect and the uniqueness of the valuable parrot, we are hoping the public can provide information that helps identify the suspects and helps law enforcement recover the parrot," WAPD writes in a post.

Tiki is estimated to be worth $1,800.

The suspects are described as follows:

  • Suspect #1 is male, 30’s, approximately 5’10” to 6”00” tall, medium build, close shaven beard, and last seen wearing a baseball hat with older style Milwaukee Brewer logo, puffy black vest, and a gray sweatshirt underneath.
  • Suspect #2 is female with black or dark colored hair, medium build, and last seen wearing a baseball cap, white coat with a fur lined hood, and green style pants.

If you know anything about this incident, please contact Detective Jeff Zientek (414) 302-8086 or remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward by calling Crime Stoppers at (414) 476-CASH.
