HEARD the one about the missing dog that was found 4000km away from home?
That’s the story of a young border collie named Jasmin who disappeared last month but who was found in Cloncurry on Wednesday, a long way from her home in Perth in Western Australia.
The Cloncurry Stock and Rural Crime Investigation Squad (SARCIS) have been conducting investigations into the theft of the family pet that was stolen from a Perth address in January 2016.
SARCIS detectives received information that the 20-week-old border collie dog was at a cattle property near Cloncurry.
On February 24, detectives executed a warrant on the property and located and seized the dog.
A 20-year-old female was issued a Notice to Appear to appear in the Cloncurry Magistrates Court for the offence of Bringing Stolen Goods into Queensland.
Police said the dog’s owner was highly appreciative of the efforts from police at Cloncurry and his family is looking forward to being reunited with ‘Jasmin’ after her long trip home.
