Two things are apparent from this heinous crime in Pasco

"Heavyset" male suspect smashes door to steal pups

Wednesday night, a victim in the area of Road 36 in Pasco reported to police six three-week-old French Bulldog puppies (Frenchies) that were stolen from their home.

Pasco Police say surveillance cameras captured a heavyset male who smashed in a sliding door, then moments later came out carrying the pups in a kiddie pool.

  It's obvious the perp will likely try to sell them

Police say the pups are not old enough yet to be weaned from their mother as they are only 3 weeks along.

It's pretty obvious the perp will likely try to sell them on the 'black market' because these days Frenchies are VERY popular, and can cost upwards of 400-600 dollars if they are purebreds.  However, some websites are reporting they can cost upwards of $1,000 or more!  The reason for the high price is because the breeding costs are expensive.

Anyone who may have any information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential.
