From Rome Police reports

A Rockmart man told police that he believes his dog was stolen earlier this week.

The man told a Rome police officer he left the Yorkie/Poodle mix with a friend when he got arrested.

Then when he got out of jail, he was told the dog had died.

The man, who said he paid $1,700 for the dog, didn’t buy the story and speculated that the friend had sold the pooch for money.
