Six Cockapoo puppies have been stolen from a property in a Norfolk village.
The 10-week-old dogs were taken from a home in Carbrooke, near Watton, at some point between midnight on Sunday, September 6, and 10am on September 7.
Police say the offenders forced access to the chain link fence of a kennel before stealing the puppies.
Officers are keen to speak to witnesses who may have seen people acting suspiciously, or those who may have been offered the puppies for sale in unusual circumstances.
Anyone with information should contact Sgt Richard Moden at Dereham police station on 101. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
