    A Berwyn woman will serve jail time for stealing an exotic bird.

    A judge sentenced Viviana Rossi to 90 days behind bars for her role in the theft of a rose-breasted cockatoo from a suburban Petland store.

    Rossi is one of four people charged in connection with the thefts of more than $6,000 worth of exotic animals from several suburban pet stores.

    Rossi has already served about a third of her sentence since her arrest on Sept. 1.
