Coco, the stolen toy poodle, has been located in Langley.

The four-year-old dog was snatched from her owner at a Burnaby mall parking lot Saturday. Coco’s owner offered a $2,000 reward for her safe return.

Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy confirmed that Coco’s owner was called by a Langley resident asking her to come and pick up her dog.

Instead, Langley officers went to the residence and safely retrieved the tiny dog, reuniting the toy poodle with its owner.

Burnaby RCMP made a public appeal for the return of a stolen toy poodle shortly after the dog was taken from a shopping cart while its owner was loading groceries into her vehicle at Lougheed Mall.

Coco’s owner carries her in a special purse-like bag.

Coco was in his bag in the shopping cart when a silver older model Honda civic drove up and one of its occupants snatched the dog, in front of the victim.

The suspects were described as a Caucasian man in his 20s and the driver was a woman with blond hair, also in her 20s.

More information is to come from the Burnaby RCMP about potential charges and more information about the incident.
