LUBBOCK, Texas– A local pet store posted an update on Tuesday that it recovered two stolen puppies after they were reported stolen last week.

When store employees arrived at about 8:00 a.m. on December 3 to Pets Plus, 6419 University Avenue, they realized their business was broken into, said Richard Evans, owner of the pet store last week.

He said suspects broke a window at the front of the business to get inside and then kicked a door in to get to two English Bulldogs.

When Pets Plus was asked how the puppies were recovered, the store said they could not yet comment due to the ongoing investigation.

Anyone who has any information on the investigation can contact Detective Feldman with Lubbock Police at (806) 775-2434.
