THORNTON, Colo. -- A Chihuahua puppy stolen from a Thornton pet store was brought back.
The puppy was returned to the Pet Ranch Tuesday night just before the store closed.
The puppy, valued at $1,000, was taken Sunday by a man and a woman with a child in a stroller.
Surveillance video captured the theft, showing a man with a football jersey take the dog and place it underneath the stroller.
“It’s bad enough you’re going to be a thief, but why use your children? I have a moral issue with that. It’s a child. It’s learning. This is what it’s being taught,” Pet Ranch owner Renee Reese said Tuesday.
Reese said that within hours of our story Tuesday about the thefts, the dog was returned.
No arrests have been made in the case.
