The City of Lone Tree says 18-year-old Alexandra Kennel, 18-year-old Tyler Ryan Mayden and 20-year-old Trevor Roarke Power were all arrested on Wednesday in relation to the case. Charges against them include conspiracy and theft by receiving.

Police are still looking for 18-year-old Brittany Cooper who they believe took the dog from the pet store.

According to Lisa Stone, an employee at Just Pets in Lone Tree, a woman had come into the store on Monday the day to look at a 9-week-old pug. She came back later in the day and said she wanted to take the dog home.

As Stone started the paperwork, another customer came in and asked a question about another pet.

While Stone was distracted, the woman ran out of the store with the pug.

The pug cost $1,200.

Stone says detectives returned the pug to the store just after 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday. She says the pug was hungry, tired and a little overwhelmed, but is healthy overall.
