Petland Bellaire has asked for help in identifying three suspects who vandalized the store and attempted to steal puppies early Sunday morning.
Surveillance footage inside and outside the store captured the attempted theft. At approximately 6:22 a.m. Sunday, three individuals parked a gray pickup truck at the entrance to Petland Bellaire, located at 6429 Westheimer Road. The vehicle’s license plate is not clearly visible. In surveillance footage, the individuals are seen smashing through the store’s front door with what appears to be a tire iron. They then headed for the kennels. When the masked noticed the Petland employees working in the kennels, they fled the store.
No employees were injured and no animals were taken away.
Thousands of fans left Minute Maid Park with replica No.27 Jose Altuve jerseys from a Sunday giveaway.
The Houston Astros star didn’t come off the field with his.
Altuve hit a three-run homerun to cap a surprising six-run rally late in the ninth inning, having his shirt ripped in a frenzied celebration and lifting the Astros up to the New York Yankees 8-7.
“It was a miracle,” manager Dusty Baker said.
The Astros had been shut out by the Yankees in the previous two games, evidenced by ace Gerrit Cole’s three hits in a 4-0 victory on Saturday night.
But in a series where teams took turns after lingering ill will over the years – including Yankees star Aaron Judge appearing to mock Altuve – the Astros and their dynamic second baseman had the final say.
