WICHITA, Kan. -- A Yorkshire terrier that was stolen from a Wichita Petland store in a case of identity theft, has been returned.
After watching our story on June 25th on the two puppies that were purchased fraudulently from the store, a citizen returned the dog to the store, according to the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office.
On May 15th, Petland owner, Brad Bockus says the suspects charged $5,500 on that card to buy two Yorkshire pups and supplies for the dogs.
"It's gut wrenching," said Bockus."Taking something for nothing."
Investigators arrested a man Tuesday afternoon that led them to the woman's stolen items and one of the stolen puppies. The other dog was sold.
Sheriff Lt. David Mattingly says if you recently bought a Yorkie puppy and the deal seemed unusual, you can take it in and have it's chip scanned to make sure it doesn't belong to Petland.
