Puppy Store Virginia
Police in Manassas, Va., said someone apparently stole six puppies valued at nearly $6, 000.
The incident was reported about 6:20 p.m. on New Year’s Day at DC Pups, in the 9000 block of Center Street.
Manassas police responded to calls about a burglary and found a broken window, suggesting that the thief had entered the business between 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. that day.
Gone were six puppies: two Maltese, one Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, two Maltipoos and one Cavachon.
The dogs are valued at $5, 885, authorities said.
Adrienne Helms, a spokeswoman with Manassas City Police, said Tuesday that the “poor little things” were still missing. She said police had no description of a possible suspect.
“We’re following up on all leads, but nothing has panned out so far, ” Helms said, noting that Animal Control authorities were also helping to investigate the thefts.
Helms asked residents to look for any suspicious activity.
“If you see Cruella de Vil, ” Helms said, referring to the character in the movie “One Hundred and One Dalmatians” and the novel who kidnaps puppies for their fur, “let us know.”
