Police need your help finding a poodle puppy thief in Coral Springs.
On December 6, at 11:33 a.m., while Cassandra Ruise was inside her home, a black male juvenile entered the neighbor’s backyard, at 4100 block of NW 78th Lane. He then reached over the chain link fence and begins to play with her puppy. The male then leans entirely over the fence, picks up the puppy and leaves the area.
The puppy, “Lily” is a 4-month old Poodle mix. It is all black with a white mark on its face and chest.
The puppy has not yet been microchipped and it did not have a collar on at the time of theft. The value of the puppy is $600.
