A dog that was taken from outside the Bell pub in Bell Street, Reigate, on Saturday afternoon (29 September) has been found and reunited with its owner, police said earlier today, Monday.
Both the police and the owner launched widely-shared Facebook appeals to find Ben, a collie/retriever cross.
The police haven’t published details of where or how Ben was found, but have thanked everyone who shared the post and helped to find him.
On Sunday as part of the search the police circulated a description of a man they wanted to speak to in connection with the incident, but added that from their initial enquiries it did not appear that the taking of Ben was intentionally dishonest.
