Police are trying to find the owners of a Jack Russell terrier, found in the back of a van in Eastbourne.
The dog was discovered with a Yorkshire Terrier last Thursday (25 August). The second animal, which had been stolen from a home in Dorset, was microchipped and is now back with its owners.
However, the Jack Russell, which is female and about 7-years-old, has now been chipped. She’s currently being kept safely in kennels until her owners can be found.
Police have not so far linked the Jack Russell with any recent offence but anyone who has lost such a dog and thinks it may belong to them, can contact Sussex Police via firstname.lastname@example.org call 101, quoting serial 572 of 25/08.
You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A man aged 44, and two boys, aged 17 and 16, were arrested on suspicion of burglary in Dorset and were transferred to Dorset Police, together with the van.
There was no evidence of any offences having been committed in Eastbourne.
