We have a 6.5ft solid brick wall around are back yard. We know the neighbors behind us and next to us, they would be the only ones that could look into our back yard. We have a carport, not a garage which is where they broke into...it's possible they could have been watching us for awhile, but with both our cars gone, it would have been a likely bet that no one was home for any random person.

I don't think you can over-do the exposure for this really.
Trying to think of as many ways we can help you out here - posters all over the place with rewards etc??

"Johnny didn't want it anymore and he gave it to me." But if mom hears on the radio or in the newspaper that some tortoises have been stolen, she might think twice about Johnny's new pet.
