The Moore County Sheriff's Office received a report of a stolen dog on Nov. 3 from a Vass area resident.

On Nov. 6, Timothy Cole, 47, of 310 Hannah Lori Drive, was charged with dog larceny and possession of stolen property.

    I'm always terrified of stories like this. It seems amusing at first that someone would steal a dog (maybe it was just too cute!). The truth, however, is that people's pets are often stolen and sold to research laboratories. I've learned to keep a close eye on all of my critters!
