Criss Angel's puppy has disappeared – and it's not a part of his act.
The magician's new teacup Yorkshire terrier was stolen from a
pet store along with three other puppies in a weekend heist, according
to the Las Vegas Sun, and Angel has offered a $5,000 reward for their return.
Angel, 45, who stars in Cirque du Soleil's Believe tour at the Luxor Hotel Casino, purchased the pup several days ago from Prince & Princess Puppies & Boutique
on South Rainbow Boulevard in Las Vegas and left the dog in the care of
the store's owner, Gloria Lee, before leaving Monday on a weeklong
vacation to Mexico.
Then the store was robbed. "I'm very upset and concerned for the well being of all four of the
young puppies that were stolen [Sunday] night in the robbery, which
happened just before midnight," Lee told the newspaper. "These puppies
are like babies. They need special care and supervision, and, if not,
their well being could deteriorate rapidly."
The illusionist – who owns at least two other dogs – has taken to Twitter to get the word out about his missing friend.
"Thanx all for your kind thoughts about the @adorablepups," he Tweeted on Tuesday. "IF U KNOW SOMETHING CALL LV Metro Police 702 828-3573 lets catch these losers RT."
