DURHAM — Police have recovered most of the police equipment reported stolen from an officers home on Tuesday. However, the officers puppy is missing and needs its medication, according to investigators.
Christopher Reina, 18, is charged with breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, felony larceny of a dog, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of stolen goods.
The department reported on Wednesday that someone had taken a few Durham Police Department uniforms, handcuffs and a Taser weapon, along with the small dog, electronics and jewelry.
As of Thursday, investigators were still looking for several uniform shirts and the dog. Reina told investigators that he had given the puppy to an unidentified family in the parking lot of Beauty World at 1418 Avondale Drive, according to police.
Police are asking for the return of the dog, saying that it has been without its prescribed medication for three days. The department announced Thursday that the people who have the dog are not in trouble and will not face charges for having it.
County records did not immediately say what bond had been set for Reina, of Broad Street.
