FISHERS, Ind. (AP) - Police in an Indianapolis suburb say they’ve found a giant tortoise named Alfred that escaped from its enclosure.

Fishers Police Sgt. Tom Weger tells WISH-TV (https://bit.ly/1LcYmS4 ) that a homeowner called the police Friday when he saw the tortoise, thinking it probably needed to be rescued. Officials estimate the tortoise weighs at least 150 pounds.

Police posted a message about the tortoise on social media, and officials say Alfred’s owner came forward to claim him a few hours later.
