Woman's dog A Chino woman has been reunited with her prized French bulldog, stolen from her home four months ago, police said Monday.

In September, a man met the woman at her home for the purpose of buying the dog, which was valued at $3,000. He grabbed the animal and fled through the woman's front door, the Chino Police Department said.

In December, police said, a similar crime took place in Santa Ana.

Police said leads in both cases led them to Darryl Cole, a Duarte resident who was booked on suspicion of taking both pets.
