Warning to dog owners of possible dog thieves operating in Milton Keynes

    Thames Valley Police is warning dog owners in our city to be vigilant following reports of two people who may be attempting to steal the animals.

    The force say they have received two reports of suspicious activity where it is possible the two persons may be trying to steal dogs in the area of Downhead Park, and they may be seen in other areas of Milton Keynes as well.

    They are described as a white male late 30s and a black female early 30s both wearing backpacks, and in one report they also wore high visibly vests.

    Both of the people are believed to be approaching dogs with leads, treats and dog toy's which they squeak to attract the attention of the dog.

    On one report they walked up to the front gate of a house squeaking the toys. No dogs have be taken yet and on both occasions they have walked away.
