SHORELINE, Wash. — Shoreline Police say burglars broke into a home Saturday on 16th Avenue NE and stole a handgun, Social Security card and about $100 in cash.

When the owners returned, they also found their dog Roo was missing.

The thieves left the back door and gate open so it wasn’t known if they stole Roo or if he was lost somewhere in the Shoreline area.

But there was some good news Tuesday. The owner said he got a call from two men who had seen the posters he put and spotted Roo hiding in some bushes. Roo is now back home, although he does have some minor injuries.


If you know who the burglars are, described only as a male and female, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or use the P3 Tips App on your phone. There is a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case.
