Released by Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth, Chwk RCMP UFVRD


n February 5, 2013, a dog-walking company in East Vancouver reported that an employee was dropping off a dog when a man jumped into the company truck and drove off with four dogs inside.


Two of those dogs were found shortly after the incident, but two dogs were still in the truck.


On February 6, 2013, around 10:30 AM, Agassiz RCMP located the stolen truck with the two dogs still inside on a tree farm in Agassiz, however there was no driver.


The dogs were transported to a local veterinarian to get checked out and warmed up. The dogs appeared to be in good health, just cold, wet and dirty.


The dog-walking company has been advised and are currently on their way out to the Agassiz RCMP detachment to pick up the dogs.

"We are really happy the dogs were safely located," says Corporal Tammy Hollingsworth. "Such a good end to a story that could have had a very different ending."

The Agassiz RCMP are continuing their investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
