Family Pet Killed During Clovis Home Burglary

Clovis Police are looking for a burglar, who killed a family pet during a break-in.

The homeowner says she and her husband came home Tuesday evening to find that their house had been ransacked, and the couple's 11-year-old Pomeranian dead in the backyard.

Police say someone shattered a glass door in the back of the house near Carolina and Vermont, stole a laptop and gun, and kicked the family dog to death. Investigators say the thief may have kicked the dog to get it out of the way.

The break-in happened between 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., while the couple was not home.

Police say they checked with neighbors, but no one saw anything unusual.

Anyone with information is asked to call Clovis Police at (559) 324-2800 or Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-STOP.
