Victor the tortoise was stolen from a back garden in Worksop on July 23, and a 38-year-old man was arrested, voluntarily interviewed and a community resolution was agreed by the victim.

The 15-year-old tortoise was located following searches on the offender’s mobile phone which revealed the family pet was sold to a woman locally.
