Suspect Arrested in Theft of Beloved Skateboarding Bulldog
Gus the Bulldog disappeared in October.
Police in Indiana have arrested a man in connection with the theft of a beloved skateboarding bulldog.
Indianapolis police said Monday that 22-year-old Reid Albrecht, of Carmel, faces charges stemming from the disappearance of Gus the English bulldog.
Gus, known for videos in which he skillfully gets around on a skateboard, disappeared from his owners' front yard on Oct. 6.
Police say Albrecht told people he adopted a bulldog. However, cops say area Humane Society locations had no record of such an adoption, according to The Associated Press.
Albrecht was reportedly already serving a six-month drug sentence when he was arrested on the new charges.
He's currently being held in the Hamilton County Jail with bond set at $5,000, according to a police statement.
So where is Gus? Sadly, he remains missing.
In an appeal for the canine's safe return that has been posted to Facebook, his owners have offered a $4,000 reward. The post accompanied videos of Gus skateboarding and playing with the family's little girl.
"We want to thank everyone who's followed this page for their support, and for continuing the search for Gus," the page reads. "While we are encouraged that an arrest was made, unfortunately we are uncertain where Gus is. As we have more information that we can share we will do so."
