Detectives investigating the theft of a number of dogs from a Bedfordshire kennel have made a further three arrests.
Two men and a woman from the St Albans area were arrested on Monday, October 5 on suspicion of burglary in connection to the incident in Wilden last month.
Twelve dogs were also found at the property.
Detective Inspector Natalie Fletcher said: “This is a positive result and we are now working to establish who these dogs belong to, as we suspect they have been stolen.
With an increase in dog thefts across the region, dog owners are encouraged to make sure their pets are microchipped with up to date details.
