We were instructed by the police at all times, and as the police stated, they and they only will contact aggrieved parties to discuss an ongoing police matter.
Staffordshire police and West Mercia police are in collaboration over this case and they have eliminated all three dogs on the back of the truck as being stolen- including the Cocker Spaniel ( that some thought could be hot chocolate) ). This also relates to the other dogs photographed at the time.
Staffordshire police have also confirmed, and its been reiterated by West Mercia police that no parties can divulge or share information regarding the accused.( IE the person who bought these dogs)
Current ongoing police investigations no longer relate to the stolen or purchased dog / dogs.
Staffordshire police references are now available to concerned parties only. including reference numbers from West Mercia police.
These are either CAD / CRN or call log details.
They are also aware other crimes have been committed due to the imprudent social media responses, and we have been advised by Staffordshire police that DogLost could press charges if we so wish for harrassment and sue for Libel.
