French Bulldog Stolen at Gunpoint in Beverly Hills
A French Bulldog was stolen at gunpoint in Beverly Hills earlier this week. According to Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) Spokesperson Lt. Giovanni Trejo, the BHPD received a call on Jan. 3 at 8:33 p.m. about an armed robbery that had just transpired on the 200 block of South Rexford Drive. The victim was walking his French Bulldog when he was approached by two suspects, one of them armed with a handgun. A struggle ensued, during which the victim was struck by one of the suspects, who was able to grab the dog. The suspects then fled southbound on Rexford in a vehicle.
Trejo said that the department is working around the clock to arrest those responsible.
“We are committed to finding the people who did this and we are using every piece of technology available to us. That includes both public and private surveillance in the city. Detectives are working nonstop, following up on leads they are developing,” he noted. The Courier will provide updates to this investigation as soon as additional details are available.
