The suspect in the case of Honey, the missing pit bull puppy, has been arrested for investigation of robbery, according to the Seattle Police Department. We do not know if the dog has been recovered and are still gathering details of the arrest. According to the SPD, detectives tracked the man and picked him up ‘downtown’ this morning. We’ll update with more as we collect it.
Honey, a 15-week-old blue nose pit bull puppy, was picked up from in front of her house on E. Union on Tuesday. A man who told Honey’s owners that he knew where the dog was took one of the owners on a long goose chase to south Seattle on Wednesday before allegedly robbing him at gunpoint and walking off with $800 of the reward money.
UPDATE 1:57 PM:
SPD tells CHS that the person arrested in this case is a juvenile and will be booked into King County Youth Service Center this afternoon for investigation of robbery. The 17-year-old was picked up this morning by bicycle officers near 4th and Pine. He did not have a dog with him at the time of the arrest. CHS notes that at no time in the course of these reports have we found evidence that this person was in possession of the missing pit bull. The evidence that he committed armed robbery to get the reward money? That’s now in the hands of the King County juvenile legal system.
