SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have arrested one suspect and are looking for another in connection with the theft of a puppy from a pet store.
Albert Lee Sturgis, 48, of Salisbury, was arrested Nov. 7 and charged with theft over $1,000 and conspiracy to commit theft over $1,000. He was turned over to the custody of Wicomico County Central Booking.
Police are still looking for Samuel Kevin Jones, 47, also of Salisbury. He is described as black, 5-foot-10 and 275 pounds.
According to police, Sturgis and Jones were identified as the suspects responsible for stealing a female Yorkshire Terrier puppy from Super Pet, located at 329 Civic Ave. Police said that on the evening of Oct. 23, the pair entered the store and walked to the puppy kennel area.
