Police: French bulldog stolen in burglary found in Center Moriches
A French bulldog that was stolen during a burglary at a Huntington home was located in Center Moriches on Saturday.
Matthew and Jennifer Hauck say 4-year-old Stella and a PlayStation 5 were stolen while they were away during Thanksgiving. Police say the thieves came into the house through an unlocked door.
A $5,000 reward was offered for the dog's return.
Stella was found wandering on Rhododendron Drive by Chris Cohen and her sister, Colleen Franca, an hour away from the dog's home.
Cohen posted Stella's picture on Facebook and within two minutes, she was sent a poster from a friend with the couple's phone number.
The couple says they were shocked at the outpouring of support from strangers from Long Island, Westchester, Virginia and even the U.K.
