You might be thinking, "Why share it in Rochester, James, it happened in Duluth!" And that's true...but remember what happened with Sprinkles, the therapy puppy stolen in Rochester and found in St. Paul?

It'd be unusual for someone to steal in Duluth and then come down to Rochester, but you never know. Let's see if the power of the interwebs can help catch up with the person so the police can investigate.
