Another Burien Business Burglarized – And This Time, A Puppy Is Stolen
According to the King County Sheriff’s Department, a 10-week old puppy was stolen in a burglary of a Burien pet store early Thursday morning (July 29).
The break-in occurred just after 4am at A Place for Pets, located at 431 SW 152 Street in downtown Burien.
The stolen puppy is a female Scottish Terrier, which was removed from her kennel by the suspect.
Nothing else was missing from the store.
Deputies on routine patrol heard the store’s burglar alarm go off around 4:12am, then tracked it to the locationg and found the rear door in the alley open. Further investigation revealed the burglar probably got into the store by removing an air conditioner unit from a rear window.
The owner of the pet store was called and confirmed that the puppy, valued at $745, was indeed missing.
If anyone sees the missing puppy or knows who took her, they are asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311 (24 hours) or 9-1-1.
