LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 22-year-old woman has been charged with stealing a puppy from a yard in Lincoln.

Police say Kaylynn Dobbins was picked up Friday after investigators watched security recordings of the dog being sold at a grocery store on April 13. The pit bull pup, Duchess, was taken April 12 after her owners let her go outside into their fenced yard.

The owners posted an appeal on Facebook, and someone contacted them to say someone was at the grocery store with a dog that looked like Duchess. Police say the owners found a man who had bought Duchess, not knowing she was stolen, and they gave him $94 for their dog.

Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Dobbins’ behalf.
