Deputies in Seminole County, Florida, are asking for the help of Tampa Bay residents in identifying the suspects who burglarized a Longwood home and terrorized the family's pet.
The residents returned to find their home ransacked and Lilly, their dog, missing.
The 3-year-old pitbull dog returned the next morning, a sheriff's spokeswoman said, "scared and covered with welts."
Lilly was treated by a veterinarian and is expected to recover.
The Sheriff's Office said a home surveillance camera filmed the burglars "taunting the dog and throwing a large object at her."
Deputies released images of the suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477 or the Sheriff's Office at 407-665-6650. Credit: Laura Curry Dyer
