Puppy stolen from Barrie pet store found, 4 kittens still missing

Police say numerous tips helped them track down a puppy stolen from a Barrie pet store but they're still looking for four kittens and their kidnapper.

The animals were swiped from Doogans Pet Emporium at the Kozlov Mall early Sunday morning. Police say surveillance video from the store shows a man forcing his way in, pulling the animals from their cages and carting them away in plastic bags.

A nine-week Cockapoo was found in Innisfil Monday night.
