Dog Theft: Do you recognize these suspects?

    Boise Police detectives want your help finding a distinctive dog that was stolen from a vehicle by two suspects in Boise late last week. 

   What happened: On Friday December 7th officers received a report of a theft from a parking lot at a retail store on the 8300 block of West Overland at approximately 6:30 p.m. The victim tells police the small poodle was left in an unlocked vehicle while the owner went inside to shop. When the owner returned to the vehicle, the dog was gone.  Unfortunately, the surveillance footage from the parking lot did not yield a vehicle or suspect description. The animal is valued at more than $1,000.00

The dog is described as: a black male Toy Poodle with an orange mohawk down its back.

On Saturday December 8th, officers received a call from a concerned citizen who believes he may have seen the dog in the possession of two female suspects at a store on 12th Avenue in Nampa. According to the witness the suspects purchased dog related items at the store and then left with a dog that matched the description of the stolen poodle.
