Shawn Lerch of Leechburg, Pennsylvania has two dogs, a golden retriever and a Rottweiler puppy. Earlier this month, they got loose and wandered over to the house next door.
--The neighbors there were 41-year-old Scott Duff and his 38-year-old wife Roxanne. And for some reason, they decided to return the golden retriever . . . but LIE about finding the puppy so they could sell it on CRAIGSLIST.
--Shawn was suspicious that they'd kept the puppy, and ended up calling the cops. When they went to check it out, they found a babysitter and Scott and Roxanne's five-year-old son . . . WHO TOTALLY RATTED THEM OUT
--The cops asked if the babysitter and the boy had seen the puppy, and the boy told them "that his mommy had given the dog to a woman from the Internet."
--The cops confronted Scott and Roxanne, and they admitted it. Fortunately, the cops found the buyer and got Shawn's puppy back. The Duffs were both charged with theft, conspiracy, and false reporting.
