Expensive puppies stolen from Petland

Posted: Updated:

Thieves stole puppies worth thousands of dollars from a north Dallas pet store early Friday morning.

The burglary happened at about 3 a.m. at the Petland on Preston Road near Forest Lane.

Two men wearing hoodies broke in the front door and raided the kennels, taking Boston terriers, a Yorkie and a Shih Tzu. They left other dogs like a Dachshund behind.

General manager Chris Brauer said each of the eight stolen puppies was worth more than $1,000.

"Obviously they are not looking out for the wellbeing of the puppies. They're looking to sell to someone looking for a holiday present," he said.

Brauer is now hoping someone will call police if they come across a suspicious seller.

Less than two months ago expensive puppies were taken from other Petland stores in Frisco and Plano.

Police arrested 27-year-old Darrell Ramirez for the crimes and he is still in the Collin County jail. But his accomplice was never caught.

Investigators are reviewing those cases again.
