Gang smash through back door to steal puppies, Basildon, Essex #PetTheftReform


Around 10.40pm last night 23rd oct 2020 we was sitting in the living room watching tv my kids had just gone to bed mum and where in the front room with our puppys as they not long had there last feed and was just about to settle them for the night.

All of a sudden we heard a massive smash of a glass window, 3 men had smashed through my back door with hoodies and masks on, we jumped up and screamed in horror as they shouted where’s the puppies where’s the puppies.

They squirted me and my mum in the face with some sort of ammonia I couldn’t see nothing at all and my eyes started to water and pour with tears, they threw my mum to the floor (who is 62yrs old) and punched me in the face as the grabbed the puppies my children came running down the stairs screaming and crying as these total scumbags fled taking our beautiful babies with them.

Two of them run through the front door the 3rd through the back, taking our pups with them. 😭😢

Please please help us get our babies back and get these scumbags caught they are the lowest of the low and don’t deserve to be walking the streets.

They have terrorised me and my family and we are now scared to stay at our own home, my children are petrified and keep asking if they are going to come back. 😭😭😭🤬🤬🤬

I am so scared and still shaking as I’m writing this.

Essex Police appeal for help to find the Bulldog puppies:

We are investigating following a break-in in #Basildon where three English Bulldog puppies were stolen.

It was reported three men forced their way into an address in Deneway at around 10.50pm on Friday 23 October.

One of the men sprayed a woman inside the property in a face with a substance and three puppies were stolen before the men left.

One of the suspects has been described to us as being of Asian on Mediterranean descent and wearing tracksuit trousers.

One of the other men is described as being around 6ft tall, in his 30s or 40s, large build, wearing a navy top with the hood up, and had dark hair.

It is believed at least one of the men was wearing a balaclava or beanie-style hat.

Our enquiries are ongoing.

We are particularly looking for anyone who saw a dark coloured estate car, a dark coloured hatchback, or a white transit-type van in the area at the time or the days before.
