Police are appealing for information following the theft of two puppies and power tools in a burglary at a farm in Birstall.

The burglary happened during the evening of February 25.

The dogs stolen were two Jack Russell puppies who were 10 weeks-old at the time and would now be 12 and a half weeks old.

A photograph of the puppies has been released as part of an appeal for information.

One of the dogs is female and described as white with tan patches on both ears. The other dog is male and is described as white with tan patches with a three inch ‘docked’ tail with two black spots on it.

Three chainsaws, a saw and two drills were also taken.

PC Lucy Ramsden, from the Batley & Spen Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We are keen to hear from anyone who has been offered dogs matching these descriptions for sale. If anyone has been offered tools for sale in suspicious circumstances then we are also keen to hear from you.

“Anyone with information is asked to call the Batley & Spen Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101.”
