Sailor returned with her family safe and sound. This French Bulldog was stolen by a couple who then hoped to extort money from his owners. However, this does not take into account the intervention of the police, according to CBS Miami on Wednesday, July 6.
Reinier Fuentes, 33, and his partner Lilianne Dominguez, 26, are behind bars. The couple are indicted on multiple charges after kidnapping a dog and demanding a sum of money for its return. Their detention took place on June 26 at a Miami mall.
Sailor and her owners call Marathon, Monroe County, Florida home. He is his father’s working dog. Within hours of his disappearance, his family began receiving anonymous messages and phone calls. Their mysterious interlocutors told them that they had a dog. They also told them that they would only return them safe and sound for a $1,000 ransom.
As soon as this became known, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office launched an investigation and was able to identify the suspects, Reinier Fuentes and his accomplice Lilianne Dominguez in this case.
On the advice of the police, the owners of the French bulldog agreed to meet with the kidnappers. It was held at Dadeland Mall. Fuentes and Dominguez were there, as well as the sheriff’s deputies, who had no difficulty in arresting them.
