The suspects went into their house and stole a variety of things: electronics, jewelry, and the dog. The detectives and officers were looking out for stolen property for anything to have a lead to catch the suspects.

“The officers went to a pawn shop and they found a few items that belonged to the family that had been pawned,” Officer Daniel Segura told ABC News. “So they followed up on their leads to see who pawned it and got a search warrant and went to the house, and when they went to the house, as soon as the occupants opened up the door, they saw the rest of the stolen items inside the house. And the dog was inside the house, too.”

“They surprised us at my daughter’s 10th birthday party. We had no idea, Julia Templeton, the puppy’s owner, told ABC News. “They called and asked where we were and they showed up. I couldn’t believe it. I really thought they were just coming to show me some pictures of some of the material things that were taken. I walked out and saw his head poke out from the bar on the police car.”
