Puppy robbery: four people arrested for aggravated robbery
The police have worked on the case intensively for a month. On Tuesday, there was a breakthrough. Four people were arrested.
– Three are being detained on suspicion of the aggravated robbery in Önnestad. Another one is suspected of handling stolen goods. And we have seized some of the puppies, says Tommy Börjesson with the police in Kristianstad.
The people were arrested in Skåne, but not in Kristianstad. The dogs are doing well.
The people were questioned in the afternoon and were then detained by prosecutors.
Do the suspects confess to committing any crime?
– I don't want to go into that, says Börjesson.
What led to the arrest?
– It happened after we processed all the information that we had received. We call it internal surveillance, but really it is classical police work.
Much work remains.
– We would like to have help from people who have bought a golden retriever puppy after the 9th of January. Perhaps you felt a little that something wasn’t quite right with the deal. It could be about how you found the ad or that the seller could not answer your questions, says Börjesson.
Those who have bought the stolen dogs will not have received a pedigree certificate but an inspection certificate issued by a veterinarian. The certificates are probably counterfeit.
