BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Two Brooksville man have turned themselves in after reportedly stealing five dogs from a Hernando County animal shelter last week.
The sheriff's office reports that the two cousins, 20-year-old Jose Navarro and 26-year-old Juan Claudio, broke into the Humane Society of the Nature Coast and stole three pit bull puppies and two adult dachshunds. Claudio surrendered Saturday, and Navarro surrendered Sunday.
Deputies had canvassed a neighborhood where two of the puppies were found last week. They found one of the dachshunds at a home, and the woman who lived there told deputies that her husband, Claudio, had brought four animals home. She said she let the puppies out, but kept the dachshund inside.
One puppy was still missing, and one of the adult dachshunds was found dead near the shelter Friday.
