EL CAJON — Thieves stole two pit bulls from an animal shelter in East County in a brazen daylight heist.
The thieves broke the locks and bent the doors on two cages, making off with the two dogs.
Signs posted at the shelter say that all animals adopted from the facility have identification chips embedded under their skin. It was not known if the stolen animals had the identification chips.
Police did not have a description of the thieves and shelter employees were not available for comment.
