2 arrested in Md. puppy thefts

SEVERN, Md. (WUSA9) -- Two people were arrested after stealing two puppies from a home in Anne Arundel County on Friday, police said.

Ashley Thomas, 21, and Tennese Koffa, 22, both of Severn, Md., stole two blue pit-bull puppies from a home on Patuxent Road, police said.

The puppies' owner told police Thomas and Koffa came to the home and inquired about buying the dogs from him.

"On February 6, 2014, the victim discovered the puppies were missing from his property. On February 7, 2014, the investigation led officers to the 8200 block of Dunfield Court in Severn where the puppies were safely located," police said in a news release.

Police believe there may have been a third person involved in the thefts. Charges are pending against that third suspect, police said.
