The Grundy County Sheriff’s Office said a male juvenile, Caleb Road, 20, of Coal City and Sergie Murrell, 21 of Custer Park allegedly broke into Dee Dee’s Pet Palace in the 5600 block of East Route 113 in Coal City and stole a chinchilla, US currency and the video monitor belonging to the video surveillance system in the early morning hours on May 18th of 2020.
A few hours later, the three individuals were then allegedly joined by Ashleigh Hoger, 19, of Braidwood as they then stole a show dog valued at $25,000 from a barn in the 2200 block of East Border Street in Diamond. Investigators say Roed then saw a $500 reward for the dog posted on Facebook by the dog’s owner on May 19th.
Roed met up with the dog’s owner and returned the dog saying he allegedly found it on the road. The owner became suspicious and called the police. Roed did not receive the $500 reward. Police officials say the chinchilla and show dog were returned without injury.
