A LURCHER was stolen from a house in St Albans shortly after midnight on Sunday.

Wendy Roberts of Marshall Avenue described how her partner Trevor Davie went downstairs to check the kennels after they were woken up by their border collie barking.

Mr Davie discovered that not only was their lurcher named Alfie missing but the lead they used to secure him had been cut and the security lights they had installed had been ripped out.

Mr Davie said: "Alfie is a part of our family and I just want him back. I'm gutted that someone has taken him and he means everything to me and my family."

Ms. Roberts added that the dog was a cross-breed and not particularly valuable but could be used for rabbiting.

Alfie is two years and four months old and his colouring is brindle and white. The police are treating the incident as a burglary and are appealing for witnesses.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Pc Marc Capicotto on 01727 796028 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
