Located Safe as of March 13.

KELOWNA, BC: Police in Kelowna are continuing their investigation into the theft of an 18-month-old Golden Retriever, taken Saturday evening from a fenced yard in Kelowna’s Mission area.

On March 9, 2019 at 7:47 pm, RCMP received a report of a theft of dog from the fenced yard of residence located in the 2400 block of Taylor Crescent in Kelowna. Police were told that at approximately 7:34 pm, the female suspect seemingly opened a gate to the property and called the Golden Retriever out of the yard. The dog named Atlas then followed the woman, who ran on foot towards Birch Avenue.

The female suspect has been described to investigators as Caucasian, with blonde hair, seen wearing a dark coloured jacket, a dark pair of pants and a white toque at the time of the alleged theft. She was reportedly associated to a white sports utility vehicle or SUV.

“RCMP are taking the matter seriously,” states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “Police have followed up on some investigative leads, as they continue their efforts to identify the woman in the video and ultimately locate Atlas.”

At this time there are some indications that the theft may have been targeted, however police will continue to treat the incident as random until that can be confirmed. At this time there are no other similar reports.

Anyone with any information on the identity of the woman, or knows the present location of Atlas, is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 and quote file number 2019-12609.
