A soccer player from England who lives in the Hollywood Hills was reunited with his dog on July 9 after the Pomeranian named Lucci was allegedly stolen during a burglary the previous day.
Daniel Sturridge, who formerly played for Liverpool FC in the English Premier League, announced on social media that the dog had been returned. Los Angeles Police Department authorities confirmed on July 9 that detectives were investigating a burglary at Sturridge’s residence, but could not confirm that the dog had been returned as of press time.
The burglary allegedly occurred late on July 7 or during the early morning hours of July 8 in the 2300 block of Mount Olympus Drive, said LAPD spokesman Greg Kraft. The dog and an undisclosed amount of property were allegedly stolen. Sturridge previously announced on social media that he was offering a reward of up to $30,000 for the dog’s return. It was unclear if any money was paid.
Kraft said the suspects gained access to the residence by smashing a glass door. No description of suspects was provided. Detectives from the Hollywood Division continued to investigate the case on Wednesday.
Anyone with information is urged to call detectives at (213)972-2967.
