A puppy bandit has struck a Mitchell pet store again. Ed’s Pet World owner Ed Anderson says two puppies were stolen from his store in a burglary early Tuesday morning. Surveillance video showed a lone male entered the store around 1:45 Tuesday morning. The two seven-week-old poodles were taken, as was a dog cage. The cash register was smashed and money was stolen as well. A reward is being offered for the return of the puppies. It is believed that an earlier incident at K and B Archery on Main Street may be related. A male subject who was attempting to forcibly enter K and B fled when confronted by a witness. The Ed’s Pet World burglary happened several hours later. Anyone with information on these incidents should contact Mitchell police at 995-8400.
The department will be called The Ron And Sheilah Gates Department of Music.
