Four locals arrested over Lincoln puppy thefts

Puppy thefts: Four people have been arrested in connection with theft of three puppies from a Lincoln property.

Four people have been arrested in connection with the theft of three puppies during a burglary in Lincoln earlier this month.

Two Lincoln men aged 30 and 34 and two Lincoln women aged 17 and 27 have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed pending further enquiries.

As previously reported, three of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross puppies from Roxy’s litter of 11 were stolen from their foster home on Foss Street in Lincoln overnight between August 6-7.

At the time, the puppies were eight-weeks-old and waiting to go to new homes.

It is believed the offenders got into the property in which five of the puppies were staying via an open window, left open to keep the dogs cool.

Yasmin, Lucy and Tara were recovered in the Monks Road area, Moorland Avenue area and Cleethorpes with help from local residents and charity Bullies In Need.
