Sheriff’s deputies have recovered the last of four show dogs who were inside a cargo van that was stolen this week in Los Angeles County.

Detectives say a pair of Pembroke corgis named Bunny and Peter were found safe Wednesday night in Compton. The van and a pair of purebred Akitas were found in the community earlier in the day.

The van was stolen from a motel parking lot in Bellflower late Monday or early Tuesday. Detectives said they believed the van, not the dogs, were the target of the theft, even though the dogs were worth an estimated $500,000.

Dog owners David Peek and Kristina Rickard were in town to take part in a weekend dog show.

No arrests have been made in the case.
