MT. HEALTHY, OH (FOX19) - Two puppies stolen from a pet store Sunday in Mount Healthy have been safely returned.

They were taken from Animal House on Hamilton Avenue. An employee said the two stolen 8-week-old puppies are from a litter of four and someone walked out with both of them Sunday night.

Employee Mike Raleigh said an anonymous caller gave the pet store a possible address of where to find them. Raleigh said he went there and positively identified the puppies before calling the police.

Within a few hours, they were returned to the pet store. The puppies cost $500 each.

Raleigh said Animal House will press charges. The names of those involved were not released.
