LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A third case of high-end animal theft this week is under investigation.
In the overnight hours of Sunday, four puppies and three exotic birds were taken in two separate but possibly related burglaries.
Now two more puppies are missing. Police said it's too soon to tell if this latest theft is connected to the others.
Early Wednesday morning, two men broke into the Puppy Boutique at Rancho Drive and Craig Road in the northwest valley and took two Husky puppies worth between $1,200 and $1,500 each.
"I hope these puppies are being taken care of now. I know they're hiding them somewhere," owner Paul Tomas said.
Tomas said that just hours before the burglary, Metro police called and alerted him to recent pet store burglaries in the area. Before he got a chance to upgrade security at his store, he became a victim.
"They popped the lock off. It's just a shame these people are doing it," Tomas said.
The suspects are difficult to see on the surveillance tape, but it appears two men in white suits opened the cages, snatched the dogs and ran off.
Tomas isn't sure how he'll make up the money he lost. Right now, his primary concern is for the puppies.
"I feel bad about those puppies," he said. "I don't know where they went. I don't know if they've been fed. We usually feed them at 6, 7 in the morning."
Tomas said the dogs have microchips and that he is working closely with metro police to see if there is a connection between Wednesday's break-in and the other recent burglaries.
