    Montezuma, N.Y. -- Authorities have recovered seven puppies that were stolen Monday in the town of Montezuma, the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office said.
    The puppies were healthy and unharmed when returned to the owner.
    Following media reports about the stolen puppies, the sheriff's office said detectives received numerous tips. Detectives also received calls from two individuals who said they had the puppies and wanted to surrender them.
    The sheriff's office said detectives met the individuals at a home in Auburn before contacting the owner who retrieved the puppies.
    The puppies, which are reportedly worth about $5,000, were taken from an unlocked shed on state Route 90 between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday.
    Detectives are still investigating. The sheriff's office said detectives are working to determine the roles of certain individuals involved.

    Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to contact the Cayuga County Sheriff's Office at 315-253-1610.

    Yeah. They were still missing at first. The thieves arrested originally wouldn't cooperate with police.

    Is Syracuse just the worst place in the world for Pit Bulls?

    Syracuse, N.Y. -- A Syracuse woman who was failing to appear in court on animal cruelty charges was arrested after she was caught stealing from the H&M clothing store at Destiny USA on Thursday, according to a Syracuse Police Department report.
    Marquette Jamison, 36, stopped showing up for court after she was charged in October 2012 with the misdemeanors of failure to provide medical care to an animal that needs it and failure to provide proper sustenance, Sgt. Gary Bulinski said. She is accused of severely mistreating a pit bull.

    Jamison now also faces second-degree petit larceny charges after trying to steal six men's shirts from the H&M, the police report said.
    Jamison put the shirts into a shopping bag labeled "Justice" and walked out without attempting to pay around 3 p.m., according to the report.
    Jamison is currently being held in the Onondaga County Justice Center jail. She will appear in City Criminal Court on Tuesday. Bail was set at $1,500.
    The pit bull, named Grace by DeWitt Animal Hospital workers, was extremely emaciated, dehydrated and had an eye infection when found in 2012, according to The Post-Standard's archives.
    The dog weighed about 30 pounds but should have weighted about 60 pounds, officials said at the time.
    "She was the most emaciated dog I've ever seen," said Stefanie Higgins, one of the founders of the Cuse Pit Crew and a member of the Animal Alliance of Greater Syracuse, in October 2012.
    The pit bull was euthanized after suffering kidney failure as a result of her neglect.
