Stolen puppy returned

Rocky has come home, thanks to assistance the public provided to Romulus police detectives.

The puppy, a French bulldog-Boston terrier mix, was returned to his owners Jason and Amber Schlegel after being taken from them at gunpoint during a robbery last month. The owners were lured to a location on Mesa Way in the city in response to a call for emergency locksmith aid.

When the couple arrived on the scene, they were confronted by gunmen who demanded cash and tools from their locksmith van. As the two suspects entered a vehicle which arrived to take them from the scene, one of the men grabbed the puppy from his owner's arms.

Romulus police detectives thanked the public for assistance in locating the stolen puppy and reuniting him with his owners.  The investigation into the robbery is continuing, they said, and urged anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspects to call (734) 942-8400.
