CREATED Jul. 29, 2012

PALM SPRINGS--  In Palm Springs, tortoises were stolen from a local attraction on Saturday night. The owner of Moorten Botanical Garden says someone broke into their property on South Palm Canyon Drive, and stole all of their desert tortoises.

The owner says these animals are not only one of the beautiful living sights at the garden, but part of the Moorten family.

16 tortoises in total-- 4 babies and 12 adults-- were kidnapped.
