The 9-week-old Chihuahua puppy stolen from Petland Shakopee has led police to Northfield—and a monstrous marijuana growth operation at a residence.
According to CBSMinnesota.com, Northfield Interim Police Chief Chuck Walerius said police were led to the local address after running the license plate number captured by Petland.
Unfortunately, the suspect and the little pup, which is reportedly worth $2,500, were gone when police arrived. However, police left the residence with a "pick-up truck" full of drug paraphernalia, according to CBS.
A woman living at the home, who was later identified as the suspect's mother, reportedly told Police she was aware of the pot operation, but not part of it. According to Northfield News, the mother also said her son and the dog had left earlier in the day for an unknown destination out of state.
The car reportedly used in the incident is a dark blue Volkswagen Passat with the license plate number 768-BDA. The suspect was also caught on Petland surveilance. The video can be seen in the video box above.
