Pet theft is a crime that is growing at an alarming rate.  On September 17th 2008, an eleven week old German Shepherd puppy was stolen from her breeder in San Jose.   San Jose Police Detective Jennifer Kurtz is hoping someone can identify a “person of interest” regarding the theft.   The man seen in the surveillance video visited the breeder and asked to see the dog just before it disappeared.  He stated he name was Anthony and he was a recent graduate from Stanford University, currently living in Santa Clara.  The breeder allowed the man to spend some time with the puppy which can be seen in the surveillance video.   The man eventually left without saying goodbye and the puppy was gone.  The stolen dog is an eleven week old German Shepard puppy named Elsie.   She is worth approximately $1300.00 and is in need of medication.

The person of interest is described as a white male adult, medium build with dark hair.  He was wearing a Stanford University T-shirt and athletic shorts and a Stanford University lanyard.  If you know the name of this “person of interest” or have any information about Elsie, please let us know at 1-800-9-CAUGHT or leave a tip at
