— Cary police are asking for the public's help in finding a missing golden retriever puppy named Lulu and the thief who they think stole her.

Police said the crook broke into a home on East Cornwall Road between 1 and 1:30 p.m. Monday and took the puppy, as well as jewelry, a Gateway computer and an Olympus digital watch.

Investigators are seeking a white man with sandy-colored, medium-length hair who stands about 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was seen wearing a tan windbreaker and khaki pants and driving a beige Ford Taurus at the time of the theft.

Lulu was last seen wearing a pink collar, investigators said.

"We're hoping that someone will recognize the puppy and help us return it to its rightful owner," Capt. Dave Wulff said.

Anyone with information about Lulu or the burglary was asked to contact Wulff at 919-469-4017 or Crime Stoppers at 919-226-CRIME or via their Web site.

Crime Stoppers pays up to $2,500 for the arrest or indictment of those responsible for certain crimes. All callers may stay anonymous.
