Main article content
A sausage dog stolen in Woodville has been found safe and well in Loughborough.
Minnie the Dachshund was stolen while out on a walk with her owner on Sunday 11 April.
Today, Minnie was handed into a vet in the Loughborough area safe and unharmed.
The two men who stole Minnie are still wanted by police.
The pair left the scene in a black Ford Mondeo (registration beginning YG60), along Moira Road in the direction of Albert Village just after 8.20pm.
Both men are described as being aged in their 30s, with one of the men being white, of a stocky build and with short fair hair.
DS Mark Ryan, who is leading the investigation into the theft, said: “I would first like to thank the public for their help in making Minnie a sausage dog who was just too hot to handle.
“We all know just how important a dog is to a family – and to be able to reunite Minnie with her owners is great news.
“The two men responsible for this crime are still outstanding and I would like to renew our appeal for anyone with information about the incident to come forward.
“Of particular interest are any drivers with dashcam footage who were in the Asda filling station in Burton Road, Woodville, between 8.10pm and 8.15pm on Sunday - where it is believed the car was shortly before the incident.”
