COLUMBIA, Pa. – A 27-year-old central Pennsylvania woman is accused of selling her neighbor's purebred dogs for $150.
Brandi Anderson of Columbia says she found the dogs dirty and without tags and didn't know the owner. She maintains that she kept the two dogs for a few days, then sold them so they'd have a good home.
Police say she is charged with theft of lost property because she didn't take reasonable measures to find the dogs' owner.
Anderson wrote on her Internet ad offering the dogs for sale that she inherited the dogs from a deceased relative. She told police she fabricated that story because she didn't think people would want to buy strays.
Columbia is about 75 miles west of Philadelphia.
