Woman sought in Slidell poodle heist
SLIDELL - Police released a photo Wednesday of a woman sought for stealing a poodle puppy from a Slidell feed store on Memorial Day.
Police said on Monday afternoon the woman came into the feed store on Gause Boulevard and was interested in pets which were for sale. A store worker who was helping her said they were distracted by another customer for a moment, and the woman snatched the poodle out of its kennel and hid it as they left the store.
Police said surveillance photos showed the woman left the business in a red or maroon two-door sedan Toyota. Police said she was a Hispanic woman between 20-25 years old wearing a plaid shirt and shorts.
Slidell Police asked anyone with information about the woman's identity to call them at (985) 643-3131.
