TEMPE, AZ - A Valley family is devastated after a home burglary, not because of the valuables that were taken but because the crooks stole the family dog.
"I'm devastated," said Ana Wells who got "Lucky" 10 years ago at the animal shelter. "She is a part of our family and we just want her home."
A neighbor called police on Friday when the couple was at work. Their home had been broken into by two young men.
The items stolen include watches, cameras and a laptop computer. Plus, a safe in the back of the bedroom closet. But what the worst part is that they took off with Lucky.
"You feel violated enough, but then they take the dog, it doesn't make any sense," said Brian Wells.
The couple said Lucky wouldn't fetch much on the open market. But to them, she is a treasure.
On Monday, Tempe police released descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle.
The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male, 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, stocky build, 170 pounds, short brown hair, 19 years old, clean shaven and wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
The second suspect is described as a black male, 6 feet to 6 feet 1 inch tall, thin build, 170 pounds, high black afro, clean shaven and wearing a black sweat outfit.
Their vehicle is described as a blue Toyota 4-door sedan with a personalized Environmental plate.
