Puppy stolen from Carrollton home in July recovered

CARROLLTON — A puppy was found safe and two people arrested more than one month after a burglary at a Carrollton apartment.

Police say on July 25, two men broke into an apartment in the 2000 block of Hebron Parkway. Authorities say the burglars stole a laptop, credit cards, and a puppy named Daisy Mae.

Authorities say the Daisy Mae was found safe when they executed warrants at a residence in the 3600 block of Auriga in Garland.

"Puppy was dirty, but seemed otherwise OK to us," said Jolene DeVito, a spokeswoman with Carrollton police. "She was a sweetheart.  We brought her back to the police department and put her in the shower in our locker room, then enjoyed her company. Her very grateful owners came and got her late yesterday."

Police arrested Jermi DeWayne Thomas and Ashley Faye Fields and charged them on burglary. Authorities were also able to recover the victims' laptop.

"Thank you ... the amazing detectives that helped get our baby back," wrote StrickLand Bullies Jonathan on a comment in response to the Carrollton Police Department's Facebook update. "This is such a blessing to my wife and I."

Carrollton police said they only had one request when they returned Daisy Mae.

"We insisted on visitation rights."
