Daylight raiders steal 10 week old Dalmatian puppy

A GANG of garden equipment thieves carried out a daylight raid at a thatched cottage on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, and stole a 10-week-old Dalmatian puppy from the garden.

Brown Betty, a liver Dalmatian bitch puppy, was in a safe puppy pen when Cathy McCarthy went to buy milk and newspapers. When she returned an hour later the garage had been opened and tools plus a new rideon mower had been stolen. Then Cathy found that her puppy was also missing. The puppy’s mother Sadie is now pining for her and Cathy has offered a reward for her safe return.

Information please to 01296 712343.

The police believe that the gang, who used a van or a truck to carry the goods away, must have seen Cathy leaving the house to the shops and back. She can be identified by both her spots and by DNA.
