ONE of the three puppies that was stolen in a South Surrey break-and-enter on April 10 has been recovered, Surrey RCMP announced on Tuesday.
Three American Bulldog puppies were stolen in the break-and-enter which occurred at a residence in the 17400 block of 8 Avenue.
On April 12, following reports in the media, Surrey RCMP received information from the public and was able to recover one of the puppies. The puppy had been sold to a member of the public at a car show in Mission over the weekend.
Surrey RCMP said this investigation is still ongoing and officers believe that the other two puppies may have also been sold in a similar manner. Investigators are now looking for any witnesses or anyone with information to come forward.
The owners were very happy to get their puppy, “Rosie,” back and hope the public will help bring the other two puppies back home safely as well.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
