A heartbroken Doncaster dog owner, whose Pekingese pooches were stolen from her front garden, has now been reunited with her beloved dogs.
The two Pekingese dogs, Marley and Mitzy, were allegedly stolen from the front garden of Adele Worgan’s in South Road, Moorends at around midday on April 4.
Mrs Worgan was reportedly contacted by a veterinary centre in Crowle earlier this week to say they had found the dogs, who had been abandoned in the area.
Earlier this months, officers arrested a 32-year-old man from Grimsby in connection with the theft of the two dogs.
He has been bailed pending further enquiries.
The investigation continues and officers would like to hear from anyone that may have witnessed the incident.
Mrs Worgan’s husband, Steven, was at home at the time of the alleged incident, when the dogs were let out into the front garden while he was inside.
He heard a yelp, and when he got into his front garden he says he saw a man get into a van with the dogs and drive off.
Mr Worgan chased after the van, but was unable to catch up with it.
The alleged dog-napper was caught on private CCTV by Mrs Worgan’s neighbour.
In the footage provided a man can be seen running while holding a dog under each arm.
The youngest of the two dogs, Marley, a black Pekingese pooch, only has one eye.
Anyone with information on the theft of the animals is asked to contact South Yorkshire police on 101 quoting incident number 428 of April 4 2015.
