Authorities in Southern California say two people were arrested after they allegedly tried to sell a stolen bulldog to the dog’s original owners.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1jANq8S ) the English bulldog, Gunny, was taken during a robbery Oct. 17. When the owners saw Gunny listed for sale on Craigslist last week for $2,500, they contacted the San Bernardino County sheriff’s department.
With the help of investigators, they posed as prospective buyers and arranged to meet with the suspects in a Fontana parking lot. After the owners identified the dog, deputies made the arrests.
Sheriff’s officials say 21-year-old Jamill Slaughter and 19-year-old Carla Martinez could face charges including possession of stolen property. It wasn’t immediately known if they are suspected of stealing the dog.
