Puppy stolen from Petland

think they know who snatched a 9-week-old from the store around 11 a.m. yesterday.

“We have a suspect and we’re moving ahead with our investigation,” said Shakopee police Capt. Craig Robson in an update Tuesday morning.

It shouldn’t have been too difficult for officers to develop a suspect since the store spotted the license plate number of the car the thief drove away in.

Store employees saw a white man, around 6-feet tall with a grey-knit hat, run out of the store with a nine-week-old the dog Chihuahua after asking to see the puppy, according to shop owner Heather Latko.

The man was left to play with the puppy in a puppy room. Moments later, he fled with the dog in a dark blue Volkswagen Passat with the license plate 768-BDA.

His movements in the store were captured on surveillance video

Shakopee Police was immediately notified and a lost pet alert was issued by helpmefindMYPET.com.

This is at least the second time someone has stolen an animal from the Shakopee Petland.

Last summer, a woman walked out with a Persian kitten, which was later returned.

Petland Shakopee embeds its animals with a microchip from HelpmefindMYPET.com, a national registry and alert service for lost and stolen pets.

HelpmefindMYPET.com sent a photo and physical description of the puppy to the pet community within a 25-mile radius of the store.
