[RC] Stollen Dogs - Annie George

It seems that dog thieves are as busy as horse thieves. My puppy search project turned this up, so I thought it was worth passing on.
   
TWO BLUE NINE WEEK OLD SHAR PEI PUPPIES STOLEN IN MINNESOTA
On Sunday, January 19, 2003, a woman named Elizabeth Yard, New
Brighton, MN
and James Johnsen (Maybe aliases) purchased one show quality blue
brushcoat=
 male and his sister a blue bearcoat female for $1,900. There may be a
third
party involved name Wendy Andersen of Brooklyn Center, MN.
BEWARE, they are wonderful actors. Elizabeth shared how she was going
to ve=
t tech school and was going to use the puppy in her training. Elizabeth
was =
very personable. Wells Fargo Bank has informed us that Elizabeth
Yard's
 banking account was a bogus account.
We called the two phone numbers that Elizabeth gave us and they had
been di=
sconnected. We contacted the Lindstrom, MN Sheriff's office and the St.
Paul=
, MN Police Department. We were informed that this wasn't the first
time the=
y had done this. On January 6, 2003, they purchased 2 AKC Beagle
puppies and=
 did the same thing to those breeders.
They are driving a late model Chevrolet light tan crewcab pickup. If
you se=
e or hear of these people, or if someone calls you about buying or
selling
the puppies described above, please ask them for their names and phone
numb=
ers and then call us at 651-257-4304 or Officer Theresa Spencer, St.
Paul Po=
lice, at 651-248-3997, or the Chisago County Sheriff's
Department at
651-257-4100.
The Sheriff advised us that we probably will never see our puppies
again as=
 they may be in a different state by now. We are trying all avenues to
find =
our puppies and at the same time alert all breeders. If you belong to
other
dog clubs, please pass this information on to them. Permission to cross
pos=
t. All we want is our puppies back.
