Illusionist Criss Angel has offered a $5,000 (£3,125) reward for the safe return of his pet puppy after the pooch was stolen in Las Vegas.
The magician left his teacup Yorkshire terrier in the care of Gloria Lee, the owner of a Sin City pet store, so he could jet off to Mexico this week (beg28Jan13) for a vacation.
However, he was left devastated when thieves broke into the Prince and Princess Puppies & Boutique on Sunday night (27Jan13), stealing his dog and three others.
He has now offered a reward in a bid to get the puppy back.
Lee tells the Las Vegas Sun, "I'm very upset and concerned for the well being of all four of the young puppies that were stolen (on Sunday) night in the robbery, which happened just before midnight.
"These puppies are like babies. They need special care and supervision, and, if not, their well being could deteriorate rapidly."
Angel adds in a post on Twitter.com, "Thanx (sic) all for your kind thoughts... If u (sic) know something call Lv (Las Vegas) Metro Police... Let's catch these losers."
