Burglar steals puppies and cash from Va. pet salon

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — Someone stole six newborn huskies in addition to cash during a burglary at an eastern Virginia pet grooming business, police said.

Hampton police were called to Critter Cleaners on Friday morning. Officers say a suspect entered through a window and took the puppies and money overnight, the Daily Press of Newport News reported, citing police.

Employee Libby Howard said the suspect also ate the food of staff members, which is believed to have been used to lure the puppies.

The one male and five female puppies were 13 days old, Howard wrote in a Facebook post.

The Critter Cleaners owner breeds the huskies and keeps the puppies and their mother at the salon, Howard said. The mother was howling in distress Friday, Howard said.

Howard said an apparent suspect was spotted on surveillance video at the pet salon.
