On October 20th, the Rockledge Police Department responded to a report of a stolen dog. A family’s terrier, named Angus, had been taken from their yard.

The owners asked if he had seen their dog and he said “no, have a blessed day.”

Rockledge Police Officers were able to locate and arrest the suspect, recover Angus (who had been taken to Palm Bay), and reunite him with his family. He is doing well and is paw-sitively happy to be home!
