Police searching for women who stole puppy from pet store

COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The Columbus Division of Police are searching for two women accused of stealing a puppy from a pet store in northwest Columbus.

It happened on Monday, March 20 at the Petland on Bethel Road. According to Columbus Police, a woman wearing a long-eared hat walked around the store before asking an

employment application. She then held a black puppy and then held a white Maltese puppy.
