NYPD: 2 arrested after Siberian Husky puppy stolen in Bronx

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say two people have been arrested after a Siberian Husky puppy was stolen from an apartment in the Bronx.

Authorities say 21-year-old Collin Small and a 15-year-old boy were arrested Friday on misdemeanor stolen property charges. It was not immediately clear whether they had attorneys who could comment.
