    A beloved Upper West Side lizard was found safe and returned to its owners last Thursday after it was spirited away from a pet shop in May.

    Sandy, a bearded dragon, was stolen out of the Petqua pet shop by two men in May while she was boarded there over a holiday weekend. The owner offered a reward of $1,000 for Sandy’s safe return.

    “We are happy to report that stolen bearded dragon, Sandy, is now back at PETQUA & will soon be reunited with the rightful owner,” said NYPD’s 24th precinct on Twitter.

    The tweet said two officers “had spotted the thief walking and took police action.”
