stolen puppy found by police during arrest

The facts date back to last Monday.

On the morning of April 25, rue Francis-de-Pressensé in Villeurbanne, a man, who was holding a puppy on a leash, stole a phone from the bag of a woman accompanied by a friend before fleeing.

Moments later, they spotted the alleged thief. They went to chat with him in hopes of recovering the stolen phone. At first, the suspect denied before confessing when he saw that the victim was calling the police.

If the 32-year-old woman was able to recover her phone, the police still intervened to arrest the individual, still in possession of the American Staffordshire puppy. It didn’t take long for investigators to discover that the dog had been declared stolen and reported on April 20 on the Pet Alert association’s web page.

The police therefore contacted the owner of this two-month-old puppy. Once at the station, there was no doubt: the animal expressed immense joy to find its owner, whom it had not seen for five days.

As for the suspect, it was a 23-year-old homeless man already known to the police. Despite the overwhelming evidence, he denied all of the facts. He was finally sentenced to four months in prison on Wednesday after his judgment in immediate appearance.
