Police in Long Beach Wednesday were trying to track down suspects who ransacked a couple’s home and took their two Shih Tzu dogs.
A man arrived home about 6:40 p.m. Monday to discover his residence in the 5800 block of Monlaco Road ransacked and dogs Wesley and Bowie missing along with unspecified personal property, according to the Long Beach Police Department.
Detectives obtained surveillance video of three possible suspects and a possible suspect vehicle.
All of the suspects were described as black men in their early 20s, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall. They all were clad in blue jeans. One wore a dark red sweater, white Jordan sneakers and appeared to have shoulder-length dreads. Another was wearing a gray sweater and the third wore red underwear and a white shirt.
The vehicle, described as a silver 2018 Jeep Compass with tinted windows, was seen backing into the victim’s driveway around 5:05 p.m. and was last seen headed east on Monlaco Road a few minutes later, police said.
Anyone with information that could lead investigators to the suspects was urged to call (562) 570-7392 to speak with Long Beach police Detective Daniel Martinez.
