5-Year-Old Sells Out Parents for Selling Neighbor’s Missing Puppy on Craigslist

Facebook

Two dogs, a Golden Retriever and a Rottweiler puppy, show up at a couple’s house. Turns out, the dogs belong to a neighbor down the street. What’s their bright decision? Return just the Golden Retriever and put the other on Craigslist.

A couple in Pennsylvania face charges for theft, conspiracy and lying to law enforcement for allegedly choosing to sell a puppy on Craigslist rather than return the lost Rottweiler to its rightful owners.

And they were busted by their own kid.

Shawn Lerch, the owner of the dogs, told police that Scott and Roxanne Duff had returned his Golden Retriever, but suspected they were hiding the Rottweiler. The Duffs had previously called the police about what to do with the dogs, although the puppy had run away again.

Lerch persisted enough to get police to visit the Duff house, where they only found the Duff’s 5-year-old son and his babysitter. That was when their son “stated to the Chief that his mommy had given the dog to a woman from the internet.”

Scott Duff still thought it was a good idea to lie to police even after his son sold him out, although the couple finally caved and admitted to selling the dog to a woman for $50.

Luckily for the Lerches, the puppy was recovered and returned to the family.
