Eleven more dogs stolen in second theft incident in the Fens
Just two months after 10 dogs worth £15,000 were stolen, Fendland Police have appealed for information after another eleven dogs were taken from kennels at the rear of a property.
Offenders broke into kennels in a rear garden in Marshland St James and removed the animals between 7pm on Saturday October the 12th and 1pm on Sunday October the 13th.
This time the dogs that have gone missing are two female and one male Maltese puppies. Four female and one male adult dogs, a male pug, a female pug and a another female adult pug which is pregnant.
Officers want to speak to anybody who have information about this bulrgary or know if the dogs have been offered for sale. If you have then please contact PC Krystina Dowe at Downham Market Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
In August, Fendland dog breeder Jenny Freeman made a plea to help track down the thieves that stole 10 of her prized dogs with a value of £15,000. Some of these have since been discovered. Mrs Freeman of Walpole St Andrews was away from her home out shopping when her house was burgled and 10 dogs were snatched.
She said “I was only away for a short time-but in that brief time they smashed their way in and took the dogs,”
Many criminals have turned to dog snatching due to the lucrative money that can be made duringh times of economic hardship. Dogs can be sold easily via local networks or online.
