$ 1,000 reward given after puppy theft at Holly Springs animal rescue fundraiser
HOLLY SPRINGS, NC (WNCN) – A reward is being offered after Holly Springs Police said a puppy was stolen from a downtown fundraiser on Sunday night.
the puppy, named “Ms Percy”, was taken just before 6pm on Sunday of an animal rescue event at the Niche Wine Lounge in downtown Holly Springs, police spokesman Mark Andrews said.
The dog has been described by the owner of the business as a pit bull mix.
Pawfect Match Rescue and Rehabilitation posted on Facebook early Tuesday offering a reward of $ 1,000 for the safe return of “Ms Percy”.
Police said they hoped to identify two suspects who were last seen in a white Honda Accord. They were traveling south on Main Street, Andrews said.
Surveillance video showed the two – a woman and a man – walking outside. Another clip showed the woman walking out of the living room with the puppy. A third video showed her entering the Accord.
In the videos, the woman involved appears to be young with long hair pulled back. She was wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and jeans. The man has a beard and was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, a white cap with lettering on the front, and possibly hiking boots.
