ESSEX POLICE are appealing for information after a nine-week old puppy and a car were stolen during a burglary in West Horndon yesterday.
Pickle, a white Maltese Terrier, and a black Range Rover Sport index number AV61 XJP were stolen from a property on Petresfield Way between 2.15pm and 3pm on Monday, January 25, 2016.
Pickle was stolen from the kitchen of the house but the owner’s other dog, a three-year-old Maltese Terrier, was left behind.
Pickle’s owner Adele Rowley said: "I’ve only had Pickle a week but have grown really attached to her. My other dog is missing her too – her tail has been down since she was taken.
"I just can’t understand why someone would take Pickle and need to know she is being fed and looked after.
"Please help share our appeal and if you know anything, please do the right thing and call the police.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Pc Paul Burnett at Brentwood police station on 101. Information can also be passed to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
