Police investigating possible dognapping spree

A warning for dog owners in one county: Keep a close eye on your pets.

Police and the Boyd County Animal Shelter are investigating a possible dognapping spree.

Since February 1, the shelter has received 50 missing dog reports, much more than usual. One woman's puppy disappeared last Friday. Jessica Tibbs says she thinks a person claiming to be a Humane Society officer went to a neighbor's home to scope out the puppy.

"They pointed over here and said that our dog was mistreated and that she needed food and water when she had food and water. I believe she was stolen."

So far no arrests have been made. Experts suggest making sure dogs are collared, licensed and have a micro chip inserted.
