A stolen puppy valued at nearly $7,900 has been found safe and a suspect is in custody, Lombard authorities said.

The French bulldog/Boston terrier mix was dropped off at a pet store in Riverside, where officers were able to apprehend a suspect, according to Deputy Chief Joe Grage.


The puppy was taken from Furry Babies, 170 Yorktown Shopping Center, in Lombard around 3:45 p.m. Friday.

A security video showed a woman with a white outfit lifting the puppy out of a crib, stuffing it into a bag and leaving the store.

Charges are pending against the suspect.
