Man arrested in theft of 2 birds taken from Miami home

Marcus Page, 46, arrested on burglary charge


MIAMI – A man was arrested last week in the theft of two birds that were taken from a Miami home.

Marcus Page, 46, was arrested Thursday on a burglary charge.

According to an arrest report, Page was captured on home surveillance video about 5 a.m. April 24 stealing two cockatiels birds and their cage.

The video shows a man walking up to the home in the 1800 block of Southwest Ninth Street and picking up the bird cage before walking away. 

The bird's owner said he's had the birds for about three years. He usually lets them play in his front yard and carries them around on his shoulders.

It's unclear whether the birds were also found.
