Police hunt Mold dog thieves

POLICE are urging pet owners to be vigilant after thieves who stole two pet dogs left a note asking the family for more.

When Ken and Margaret Bennett, from Mold, went to check on their 12 month-old Border Collies, Alfie and Meg, who had been left in the garden, all they found was a note from the thieves saying sorry for the theft but they could get good money from local farmers.

The dogs were taken from the Mold address on Thursday, April 9 around noon and Police are urging anyone who may have seen anyone walking the two border collies, or who have been offered the dogs, to get in touch.

One Border Collie has now been returned to Ken and Margaret after it was found walking alone down Denbigh Road, Mold.

Inspector Alun Oldfield of Mold police station, said: “The note suggests the theft was premeditated and we will be forensically examining it in order to find clues as to the identity of the thieves.

“Although dog thefts are not common in this area, I would urge pet owners to keep an eye on their animals, as due to the credit crisis across the country, people are desperate for money and will stoop to new lows just to make a bit of extra cash.”

Anybody with information can call police on 0845 6071001 (Welsh line), 0845 6071002 (English line) or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111
