MIAMI (FOX 13) - Police are searching for two people who stole a puppy from a Miami home.
According to Miami-Dade police, a male recently responded to a Craigslist ad where the victim listed an American bulldog pup for sale, which is valued at $1,000, according to WSVN. After showing the puppy to the male suspect, he told the victim he was not interested in purchasing it, and left the home, located in the 7500 block of SW 39th Street.
Later that night, surveillance video captured video of the suspect, climbing over the victim’s fence, to remove the kennel holding the puppy from the back patio. The male is seen lifting the kennel over the fence, where another suspect was waiting. Both fled from the home.
The male suspect is described as 5’10 feet tall, weighs about 150 pounds, was seen wearing a gray t-shirt, beige shorts and black tennis shoes. Police did not have a description of the accomplice.
The American bulldog puppy is described as a male, white in color, with brown spots in his ear, face, and tail.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Miami-Dade & The Florida Keys Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-8477 or (866) 471-8477.
