A puppy stolen from the Tri-City Animal Shelter in Fremont has been recovered.

Police say the puppy was stolen on Tuesday by a man and a teen. The pit bull was later listed for sale on Craigslist.

Police set up a sting to buy the puppy and caught the suspects who were cited for theft.

The animal was then returned to the shelter and it already has been adopted.
