Missing: A bunch of coins, some video games, a compound bow and a dog.

A burglar on Monday stole a slew of electronics and other expensive items from a house in the 1000 block of Buchanan Street.

But the most valuable item taken might be a white and brown 1-year-old female Chihuahua belonging to the victim.

A man contacted Sandusky police around 10 p.m. Monday to report someone broke into his home.

The incident occurred sometime between 7-10 p.m., when the victim wasn’t home, according to a related Sandusky police report.

Officer Anthony Bath noted the apparent thief forced his or her way into the victim’s home by busting open a back door.

Bath also located fingerprints on a speaker. He tagged the fingerprints and submitted this evidence to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation.

Among the items taken: About 50 $1 coins, a 65-inch flat-screen TV, PlayStation 3 with two wireless controllers and about 15 to 20 games, compound bow, remote control car and a drill.

Bath also wrote this pooch, or another one looking like it, wasn’t taken to the Erie County Dog Pound anytime after 7 p.m. The door was left open following the crime, so it's possible the dog ran outside and is missing, not stolen.

If you have any information about this case, contact Sandusky police at 419-627-5863.
