A group of turtles are safe and sound after being rescued by officers from the North Las Vegas Police Department.
Department officials said crime scene investigators were called out to process a vehicle and they found red-eared slider turtles in the trunk.
Police said the animals were hot and dehydrated. Officials said they believed the turtles were stolen from a local pond.
The reptiles were picked up by Animal Protection Services and safely returned to their natural habitat.
