Stolen lilac bulldog still missing

Thursday January 15th 2015

A rare lilac bulldog puppy stolen from a breeder's home is still yet to be found despite police making five arrests over the incident.

The eight-week-old puppy is said to be worth around £16,000 because of its colour and a man who said he wanted to buy it ran off with it instead.

The incident happened at the breeder's home in Tadworth, Surrey, in October. Police have since arrested five men from the Oxford area between the ages of 24 and 27 on suspicion of conspiring to commit robbery. They have been released on bail until February 19 and 20.

The man who stole the puppy is alleged to have assaulted one of the breeder's relatives as he ran away from the property. It is thought that the puppy remains somewhere in the Oxford area.

Surrey Police Det Con Eloise Lock is urging the public to report any unusual behaviour from their neighbours, especially mysterious new pets.

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of the puppy is asked to contact Surrey Police on 101.
