LEECHBURG, Pa. - A Pennsylvania couple sold a neighbor's lost puppy for $50 rather than return it to its owner, police said.
Police in Leechburg, about 25 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, said a golden retriever and a Rottweiler puppy wandered onto the property of Scott and Roxanne Duff on Sept. 3.
Police said the couple helped return the golden retriever to its owner, but they told officers that the puppy had run away.
Police told the Valley News Dispatch that the Duffs really sold the puppy to a Pittsburgh woman through Craigslist. The dog has since been returned.
The Duffs' phone was disconnected Wednesday. They are charged with conspiracy, not making a reasonable effort to return lost property and making a false report.
