ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - An Oklahoma woman is facing charges that she stole a parrot from a St. Augustine, Florida, pet store.

Dawn Christine Griman of Ada, Oklahoma, is charged with grand theft.

The Florida Times-Union reported Friday (https://bit.ly/1ydQY6D) that a woman entered the Pet World store on Thursday afternoon and quietly grabbed a green white-eyed conure parrot and walked out with a man and a boy. They got into a Cadillac Escalade and drove away.

A witness spotted the Escalade on Friday and called the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies say they found Griman behind the wheel and the parrot sitting on the front seat.

She was being held late Friday at the county jail in lieu of $2,500 bail.
