Can you help bring Scooby home?

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

PO­LICE are ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic for help af­ter an 11-month-old puppy was stolen from a fam­ily home in broad day­light.

Scooby the York­shire ter­rier cross chi­huahua was taken from his home in Fenns Lane, West End, some­time be­tween 9.30am and 5.30pm, Sur­rey Po­lice said.

Thieves stole a Com­paq lap­top, Tag watch, cash and Scooby’s igloo shaped bed.

The tiny and friendly puppy was re­ported miss­ing af­ter bur­glars smashed down the front door and ri­fled through draw­ers.

The force took the ap­peal on­line and posted on its Sur­rey Heath Face­book page, urg­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to come for­ward.

The pup is de­scribed as black and tan in colour.

He is mi­crochipped, neutered and has a dis­tinc­tive un­der­shot jaw.

Owner Max­ine Fer­rari pre­vi­ously told the Sur­rey Ad­ver­tiser that her 21-yearold son made the heart­break­ing discovery.

She said: “My son came home at around 5.30pm and he came in and the dog wasn’t in his pen.

“He came around the cor­ner and the front door was smashed in and they had taken the dog, his bed, an old lap­top and ri­fled through some draw­ers. My son then rang the po­lice.” The 50-yearold con­tin­ued: “We are ab­so­lutely dev­as­tated.

“If any­one sees any­thing please let us know, we just want him back safely.”

The fam­ily have been hand­ing out miss­ing leaflets and is of­fer­ing a re­ward for Scooby’s safe re­turn.

Sur­rey Po­lice is urg­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the bur­glary or Scooby’s where­abouts to ring 101, quot­ing ref­er­ence num­ber 45170097937. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can also re­port on­line or con­tact in­de­pen­dent char­ity, Crimestop­pers on 0800 555 111.
