Lady Gaga Theft Update: Dogs Returned Safe & Sound
Lady Gaga's Dogs Found Safe & Sound!
Lady Gaga’s dogs have made a safe return to her after they were stolen last week. Found safe and unharmed, the two dogs were handed in at LAPD’s Olympic Community Office.
Koji and Gustav were found on Friday evening by a woman who the police say is ‘uninvolved and unassociated”. It is not clear how the woman came to be in possession of the dogs but her identity remains undisclosed for her own safety.
Both dogs were returned to Gaga’s representative as she continues filming in Italy. "I can confirm that the dogs have been located and are safe," Captain Jonathan Tippet said.
My beloved dogs Koji and Gustav were taken in Hollywood two nights ago. My heart is sick and I am praying my family will be whole again with an act of kindness. I will pay $500,000 for their safe return. Email KojiandGustav@gmail.com to contact us. pic.twitter.com/3NY9u7Mw2K— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) February 26, 2021
It is also unclear if the woman was paid the $500,000 reward but as Gaga said in her statement said it was on offer with "no questions asked" if her dogs were returned. Police discouraged the reward payment, claiming it promoted further criminal action.
Her close friend, Ryan Fischer, was shot whilst walking the dogs when armed gunmen demanded the dogs. It is expected he will make a full recovery.
Gaga said: "I continue to love you Ryan Fischer, you risked your life to fight for our family. You're forever a hero."
