Police are searching for two cars in the hunt to find 17 dogs and puppies stolen from kennels in Barton Mills.
The search comes following the theft of the dogs, which happened at Fiveways Boarding Kennels and Cattery on Thursday afternoon, July 9.
Two female Lhasa Apsos were stolen during the break-in, while seven Lhasa Apso puppies and six five-week-old Labradors were also taken, as well as a three-year-old working Cocker Spaniel and a white Cockapoo.
Police are now keen to track a black 4x4, which had a spare tyre on the boot and was driven by a woman in her 20s. They are also looking for a small white van with two men inside.
It is believed the vehicles were parked on or near a field in Tuddenham Road, where the kennels are, between 4pm and 7pm that day.
