Terrier reported stolen
• An American Staffordshire terrier dog was taken from a home in the 100 block of Thompson Road.
The owner did not know a monetary value for the dog but said it was taken sometime Sunday afternoon or Monday.
The dog was kept in an outdoor kennel with a cinderblock set in front of the kennel, which is what led the owner to believe a human had taken the dog.
