Update: Puppy Stolen from Local Shelter Returned Safely

Marlo's had a scary 24 hours.

Marlo, a two-month-old, neutered male black Retriever mix puppy, was stolen from the Humane Society of Indianapolis (HSI) on Monday, December 7 at around 7:45 p.m.

WTHR-TV reports that shelter employees got a call from police Tuesday evening, saying someone called them and admitted they had the puppy and returned Marlo safely.

The shelter filed a police report of the theft Tuesday morning. Surveillance footage shows a group of five young men entering the puppy room and leaving the facility shortly before the puppy was discovered missing. One of the young men appears to be concealing something underneath his jacket as he exits the building. Authorities would like to speak with anyone who has information about this case.

HSI employees noticed a group of young men, possibly between the ages of 13 and 22, enter the shelter and leave shortly thereafter. Two were older and three were younger. All appear to be Caucasian with short hair; one had dark brown or black hair and was wearing glasses, one wore a dark-colored jacket and knee-length shorts, and two were wearing light-colored hooded sweatshirts.

The puppy was awaiting adoption when staff discovered it was missing just before the shelter, located at 7929 Michigan Rd., closed on Monday evening at 8 p.m. In surveillance footage, the young men appear to drive away in a white 1990’s Chevrolet Trailblazer or Oldsmobile Bravada.

Perhaps they were afraid of the Pet Pals motley crue! Seriously, it's good to know the puppy is safe.

Glad this story had a happy ending! Since the puppy-stealer admitted to police that he had Marlo, will there be charges filed?

Very pleased that Marlo was returned safe and sound... If the youth wanted the puppy, perhaps he can do volunteer work to make up the adoption fee...

I pray that they really just wanted a puppy and didn't want to pay adoption fees!

This is heartbreaking. I hope these sons of bitches get caught!

I agree, hopefully they just wanted a puppy. Asses.

I hope it was more a matter of wanting a puppy and not for wanting to hurt the puppy however that usually isn't the case... Sickening...

I get so upset, I only hope that the poor little puppy is not being mistreated.

Excuse me, but what the Hell is wrong with people! For the love of God! A puppy!?! It makes me sick to hear about such stuff. I hope they find the poor puppy and I'll keep my comments about what I wish they'd do to those thugs to myself...
