The Clay County Sheriff's Department would like to make the citizens of the Clay County area aware that they have recently had a few incidents of dogs being stolen.
In the past few weeks, at least four rather expensive dogs have been stolen from the area. These animals were left outside, unattended, and none were tied up or fenced in at the time of the thefts.
The Sheriff's Department would also like to remind citizens who are allowing their dogs to run loose that allowing a dog to stray is a violation of Indiana State law.
If anyone has information on these thefts, they are asked to contact the Clay County Sheriff's Department at 446-2535.
