A pair of pit bull puppies was stolen from a Manassas home Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Someone broke into the house in the 9300 block of Goosebury Drive between 2 and 4:30 p.m. and took the eight-week-old puppies, a male and female, valued at $600, according to police.

Manassas City Crime Solvers will pay up to $1000 for information that leads to an arrest in this case. The confidential 24-hour tip line is (703) 330-0330.

Well, Michael Vick was in Philly signing his 1-year contract, so you can count him out as a suspect.

You really sound ignorant. Michael Vick did not steal dogs and he has paid for what he did. You probably stole the dogs.

I think he was trying to be funny; which was lost on you.

And Michael Vick hasn't paid for what he did. He is still paying for what he did by doing community service. He still has a way to go before his time is complete.

You are correct. Michael Vick did not steal dogs. He did electrocute dogs, shoot dogs, strangle dogs and drown dogs. We don't want to unfaily pile on by suggesting he is a lowly dog thief.

Amazing how Americans worship jocks, even the sleeziest, who could not care less about their welfare.

immediately sounds like an inside job or someone who is close to the house owners, or neighbors. you don't just break into a house and steal puppies.

Makes me wonder what was up with the pups. Somehow I don't think they were headed to a life as family pets. The police should investigate dog fighting rings in/around Manassas.

Advertising the pups for sale did not have the desired effect and brought the thugs on. Just another lesson on being careful using the media, especially the social media where the crooks are trolling 24/7 looking for an opportunity. The guy in NYC was trying to sell his BMW and was almost murdered for the effort when a thug answered the ad, took the car, beat him up and deposited him in the trunk.

Michael Vick will NEVER finish paying for what he did. He's a low class individual who should be digging ditches instead of playing football for Philadelphia.

People who own pit bulls are trash.


Michael Vick will forever be a gangsta thug, though it is fun to watch him get beaten up during games. His career will be very short with all the hits he's been taken.

Maybe in the sh1thole neighborhood you live in. In nice areas, we have responsible pit bull owners.
