PREVIOUS STORY: According to Chubbuck Police, late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, someone drove their car through these doors right here, once inside, suspects removed four puppies.
Pet store owner, Jim McKee was busy cleaning up after receiving a call early Thursday morning from the Chubbuck Police, that is business had been broken into over the night.
"The doors were completely gone when we got here this morning, they just knocked them completely out,” says, Pet store owner, Jim McKee.
Jim says so far, they only know of four Pomeranian puppies that were taken from the store and it seems as if the puppies were exactly what the puppynappers wanted to get their paws on.
"It was a pretty tight squeeze for them to get in here, I mean there was pallets on each side of the front door. It was something I think they planned out, it looks to me like,” says, McKee.
The pet store owner says the puppies taken were worth about $1,300 plus the cost of the doors.
"It's pretty serious, by the time the damage and everything, it's going to be a lot of money,” says, McKee.
Jim says that business has already been rough this year with the economy and all of the road construction going on around his business, so he wants people to know that they will remain open for business as usual, even though the front doors will be boarded up for a while until they get the news doors put on, and he says customers can use the side door to come in.
"Well you know, you feel violated for sure, I mean this is not something that I want to wake up to every morning and it's frustrating to be quite frank,” commented McKee.
Despite McKees being broke into, Jim says they have learned from this incident and will be making some changes.
"Something like this is just another thing to add on to your list and try to get through, just smile and go forward,” added, Mckee.
