ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque pet store says two thieves took off with two parrots worth over $2,000 each.

Petland store Owner Terri Hallberg tells the Albuquerque Journal that two men stole a scarlet macaw worth $2,800 and a Timneh African grey worth $2,200 on Saturday evening.

Hallberg says the macaw is the most expensive bird that the store has ever had and added that the less of them are being bred annually.

Employee Terry Goodman says she saw the men walk out of the store with the parrots tucked under jackets.

She says she tried to chase the men and saw them fleeing in a red Chevrolet Camaro with no license plates.

As of Monday, no arrests have been made in the case.
