Guilty plea in theft of puppies

November 30, 2007|Associated Press

A second man has pleaded guilty to stealing purebred Yorkshire terrier puppies at gunpoint from their owner's home.

Troy Cabral, 24, pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count each of first-degree residential robbery and assault with a firearm, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Kenneth Loveman.

Authorities said Cabral and Ryan Jason Betton, 19, went to the home Feb. 23 and asked to see three puppies that had been advertised for sale at $2,500 each. They returned later in the day and rushed inside when the door was opened.

Betton pleaded guilty to one count of robbery earlier this year. He is expected to be sentenced to two years in prison Dec. 10.
