Murray, UT (Nov. 29, 2018) — Suspect caught on video leaving with puppy named Cookie
A 2-month-old black and tan Cairn Terrier named Cookie went missing on Thursday, Nov. 29 between 4:30-4:55 p.m. from the Humane Society of Utah Adoption Center located at 4242 S 300 W in Murray, Utah. Security video shows a Hispanic woman in her mid-30s leaving the dog kennel area with what appears to be the puppy in her handbag and a white jacket over the top. A police report has been filed, and the Humane Society of Utah is asking the public to contact the Murray City Police Department with any tips or information.

The suspect appears to be around 5’6”, 220 to 250 pounds with long black hair and wearing a purple jacket. Two young boys, approximately 8 and 10 years old, were seen entering the facility with the woman.

“We’re extremely concerned about the safety of this puppy,” said Deann Shepherd, HSU representative. “It is quite disconcerting that somebody would take a puppy from a nonprofit animal shelter, especially with their two children present. We want to make sure that Cookie is safely returned as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Murray City Police Department Dispatch at 801-840-4000 regarding case #18C023602.
