COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) --Columbus police say have cracked the case of a valuable Victorian English bulldog puppy that was swiped from a pet store and peddled via social media.

Police said two female suspects were captured on surveillance video stealing the puppy — valued at more than $3,400 — from a Petland store in northwest Columbus on Jan. 3. Afterward, police said, a male suspect posted pictures of the puppy on social media websites trying to sell it.

Two days after the heist, Detectives identified the male who had sold the puppy via social media, recovered the pup and returned it to the pet store.

Charges against the suspects, who weren't identified, are forthcoming.
