WILTON MANORS, Fla. - Police are asking for the public's help in locating two dogs that were stolen from a Wilton Manors home Monday morning.

Wilton Manors police said a beige Labrador named Ben and gray/white pit bull named Titan were taken from a home in the 500 block of West Oakland Park Boulevard around 11 a.m.

Paula Jones, the dogs' owner, told police she went to Publix and left her son at home with the dogs in the backyard. Her son, Patrick Ives, said he was sleeping when he heard a loud banging on the door. When Ives came to the door, he saw a newer model Honda Accord driving away from the home with the dogs inside the vehicle.

Ives said a black man around 20 years old was driving the car with a 20-something Hispanic woman in the passenger seat. He was unable to get the license plate number of the car, police said.

Police said neither dog has a tracking microchip, and they were not wearing their collars when they were taken. 

If anyone has information on the whereabouts of the dogs, you are urged to call 954-390-2150 or 954-764-4357.
