Murray Police Continue Investigation into Dog Thefts
Police are continuing an investigation into dog thefts in Murray and Calloway County. Crime Prevention Sergeant Dave Howe says police have confirmed two thefts and five attempted thefts in the city. He also says, several dogs have been taken in the county and the city of Hazel.
Howe says police are searching for one suspect who is about six feet tall with long shaggy brown hair driving a blue SUV, but officials do not yet know if there are more individuals involved. Police currently believe the thieves are targeting expensive dogs that they plan to breed out-of-state. Black and yellow Labradors seem to be the preference. Howe warns area residents to keep their dogs inside or behind complete fences especially overnight.
