After an incident earlier this month saw a husky stolen, Toronto Police are now asking for help in seeking the couple who committed the crime. The four-month-old puppy was stolen from outside a Toronto store in the Carlton and Church on July 12. Today, police are looking to identify a man and a woman who are believed to have been involved in the theft.
Toronto Police said in a release that a man and a woman were spotted outside of the Loblaws at 60 Carlton Street, in the old Maple Leaf Gardens building, where they approached a four-month-old white and black husky puppy which was leashed and tied to a post.
While the owner was inside shopping, the man and woman untied the puppy, whose name is Gucci, and left the area with it.
The man is described by police as white, 30 to 40 years old, clean-shaven with blonde hair and a slim build. He was seen wearing a black t-shirt with a white design on the front and brown pants.
The woman is said to be white, 30 to 40 years old with blonde hair and a slim build. She was seen wearing a cream coloured patterned blouse, white denim jeans with rips in the knees and glasses.
Police have released these images of the people they are seeking.
