Stolen Dogs and Truck Found
By: Heartland News
CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, Mo. - Police have found a truck and three dogs, stolen Wednesday night from Jackson's Drury Inn motel near Fruitland.

The dogs are OK and are back with their owner Bob Vest.

Both Jackson police and the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Department handed the dogs over to Vest Thursday night, but officers kept the truck overnight.

Bob Vest is from Iowa.  His dogs are Australian Shepherds.  They're in town for a herding seminar at Flickerwood Arena this weekend.

Vest left the dogs in a dog box on his truck Wednesday night, while he went inside his motel lobby.

He walked back outside, just in time to see someone speeding off with his truck and the dogs.

One of Bob's friends says Bob will go ahead and stay for the weekend and he will use the dogs in the seminar as planned.
