RUSTBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The Campbell County Sheriff’s Office has located two dogs stolen from a Rustburg animal shelter over the weekend, but two more dogs are still missing and the people wanted in connection with the theft are still “at large.”
According to the sheriff’s office, authorities are searching for two people after four dogs were stolen from the Campbell County Animal Shelter at 322 Dennis Riddle Drive in Rustburg.
At 10:35 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11, authorities say a German Shepherd — who needs medical treatment for illnesses associated with heartworm — was stolen from the shelter by two people. Then, at 4:34 a.m., the same two people returned and stole three other canines, the sheriff’s office says.
Authorities describe the individuals wanted in connection with the theft — pictured in the black-and-white surveillance photo below — as between 5’5″ and 6′ tall with slim builds.
