Woman wanted for stealing dog from pet store
Original story Aug. 25, 2014: On Sunday, August 24, 2014 at about 4:35 p.m. the Paso Robles Police Department received a report of the theft of a dog from a pet store in the 700 block of 6th Street. Officers responded and determined that a white female adult had entered the business at approximately 2:40 p.m. and stolen an eleven week old tan and white English bulldog puppy valued at $900.
The suspect’s actions were captured on the business surveillance video. The suspect was observed to take the dog from an enclosure and then conceal the dog under her one piece dress. The suspect walked out of the store without incident and the theft was discovered approximately two hours later.
Police officers conducted follow-up investigation and identified the suspect as 24-year-old Atascadero resident Allison Rae Trammel. Through this investigation, the dog was located and recovered at about 3:50 p.m. Monday afternoon at a residence in the 500 block of Palm Court in Paso Robles. The dog was found to be in good health and was returned to the victim business.
Trammel is known to frequent the cities of Atascadero and Paso Robles, along with the unincorporated areas of northern SLO County. She is possibly driving a red or maroon colored Kia Optima 4 door passenger car.
