MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are investigating after a French bulldog was apparently stolen during a burglary at a home in Miami Tuesday night.
According to City of Miami Police, the victim, Terrolyn Britt, had returned to her home in the area of Northwest 66th Street and 17th Avenue just before 10 p.m. She told investigators that her living room lights were on, even though she had turned them off before leaving that morning.
“The light was on in there, and the light was on in my bedroom. I pulled up and just called the police because I don’t ever leave lights on when I leave,” she said.
When officers arrived to the scene, they discovered the window to her daughter’s bedroom shattered.
The victim also noticed that her 5-month-old French Bulldog named Jazmen was missing, along with three flat-screens and valuables.
“I knew the dog had to be missing because the lights were on in that room, so I already knew that it had to be missing,” said Britt.
Her three daughters had just received the puppy as a gift from their father.
Investigators said the burglars seemed to know the value of the pricey breed, as they busted open the door of the dog’s room.
7News cameras captured a large hole in the bedroom door.
Her daughter’s window has since been boarded up, and Britt said she hopes the family will be reunited with Jazmen.
“I’m a single parent, and I live here alone. I know plenty of people see me come and go every day, so I know that people know who did it,” said Britt. “They know what happened, but nobody is really going to say anything.”
