Lawmaker Pushes for Pet Theft Penalty
 

 

Austin, TX - If your dog or cat is stolen, the thief could face time in state prison.


State Representative Eddie Lucio III is pushing for legislation that would penalize thieves who steal house pets.


He says thieves target affluent neighborhoods and steal cats and dogs.

They use the pets for ransom or as bait in dog rings.


Lucio is pushing for a law that will give district attorneys the ability to prosecute.


This bill is currently in a House committee.


If it becomes law, it would go into effect in September.
