BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says the heinous theft of a $7,000 Chihuahua from the pet store at 9858 Clint Moore Road — in the Reserve Shopping Center — may have involved a child being used as a decoy.
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.”
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.
Anyone that can identify these suspects is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
