LAS VEGAS -- A pet store in northwest Las Vegas is the scene of the latest burglary involving animals. Two Siberian Husky puppies were stolen Tuesday night from the Puppy Boutique on N. Rancho Drive near Craig Road.
The owner of the store was notified in the middle of the night that the store's alarm was triggered. Surveillance video shows two suspects breaking in and snatching the 11-week-old puppies. They were only in the store for 45 seconds.
"I'm Mad. I'm devastated. I don't know what these people are thinking," said Paulo Tomas, owner of Puppy Boutique.
Tomas said he had been warned earlier in the day by police about the burglaries.
Both puppies have microchips and are registered with a national missing pet group that has alerted subscribers in the Las Vegas area. The puppies are siblings. One is female, the other is male.
"These are high dollar pets. So, we're thinking if anyone comes across trying to sell an animal at a much lower cost than what they normally go for, that should be an indication to get a hold of us and let us know,"said Metro Police Officer Jose Hernandez.
The pet store owner said the puppies are young and need special care and attention.
