    The Plano Police Department says one of the puppies stolen from a Petland store earlier this month has been found.

    The soft-coated wheaten terrier stolen Oct. 7 was returned to Petland by a family who recognized the man in the photograph aired by NBC 5 and other local media as the man who sold them their puppy.

    The family had purchased the puppy for their 4-year-old daughter.

    Plano police said they have been told the store will be returning the puppy back to the family, at no charge, because of their honesty.  The family also faces no charges in connection with the purchase or theft of the puppy.

    Investigators said they still have no leads on the other missing puppies, but are encouraging them to return the animals to the store.  The missing puppies are a dachshund, beagle, shih-tzu, shih-poo, Boston beagle and English bulldog.

    One man was arrested last week in connection with the theft. Plano police said the case is still under investigation and the identification of the other individual seen in the video surveillance has not yet been determined.
