Cleveland police are investigating a reported break-in after a couple said someone entered their home and stole their 15-pound pet pig named Spam, jewelry, TVs, and a camera.
The owners say they suspect the thief is planning to sell the miniature pig, which they say could be valued at as much as $1,000.
Valerie Couch posted about the missing pig on Facebook and says she hopes her public plea will lead the thief to return Spam.
CROSS POSTED ON DETROIT SHOREWAY COMMUNITY
Hi, neighbors. Our house was broken into this afternoon. We live on W. 50th between Detroit and Franklin. The worst part is they took our pet mini pig. He is about 15 lbs and picture is attached. If anyone sees him can you please let me know. A picture is attached. We are very worried about him. A neighbor noticed a tall black man in a gray hoodie driving a black 2 door Toyota with tinted windows coming from our house. She also said the vehicle looked newer. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Cleveland police say a detective will be assigned to the case.
