Rosie was stolen from the pet store at 9858 Clint Moore Road in West Boca Raton. She is worth $7000.

We first reported on the theft late Tuesday night. Police say it happened just before Halloween. PBSO issued this update:

“The female in the white blouse placed Rosie in her bag while the other female concealed the activity.  The male in the yellowish shirt remained outside but was clearly there with the suspects.  A small boy accompanied the suspects and may be the child of the female in the black blouse.  The suspects arrived in a maroon 2021-2022 Chrysler Pacifica.”

These are the suspects in a $7000 puppy theft. If you know who they are, or where they are, call police or CrimeStoppers at 800-458-TIPS.

Here is the original advisory:

Deputies responded to a theft of 12 week old female Chihuahua.  Upon arrival deputies learned that a family of four entered Puppy Buddy Pet Store caused a distraction while an adult female reached into a puppy pen and snatched the 12 week old female Chihuahua named Rosie and concealed her in her purse.  The family then walked out of the store passing all points of sale.  Puppy Buddy Pet Store suffered a loss of $ 7000.   

This Chrysler Pacifica may be the getaway car used in the $7,000 puppy theft from West Boca Raton. Call CrimeStoppers at 800-458-TIPS if you have information.
