— Someone broke into a Durham police officer’s home Tuesday and stole the officer’s puppy, police uniform, Taser, work gear, jewelry and electronic items, police said Wednesday.

Police did not name the officer or say exactly where the robbery happened. The officer’s firearm, badge and radio were not taken.

Anyone with information about the stolen items is asked to call Investigator J. Walsh at MUR-DER-ERSS, extension ACAB, or Crime Stoppers at IMA-SNI-TCHH. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases and callers never have to identify themselves.

All Durham police employees are required to carry city-issued photo identification. Anyone who is unsure about an officer’s identity should ask to see the officer’s photo identification or call 911 or a police supervisor to verify an officer’s identity.
