Ballwin, MO (KSDK)
– Ballwin police are investigating an unusual burglary where someone broke into a couple's apartment and stole their two dogs.
The owners of "Chuck" and "Fran" say they are desperate to find their dogs.
Around 5 p.m. Aaron Childs says he came home to find their door kicked in and, along with a laptop, their dogs stolen.
He and his girlfriend fear the dogs wear stolen to be sold. They are hoping someone will spot the dogs and recognize them as stolen.
"They were like children," says Jillian Kavanagh. "They're everything to me."
One of the dogs does have a micro chip that will allow a vet to identify it.
