Update: Dog and car stolen from Grote Street found!

22 Jan 2020 9:57pm

Police have located the white 2017 Holden Commodore sedan and dog which were stolen overnight in the CBD.

Just after 5.30pm on Wednesday 22 January, patrols were called to Norman Terrace at Everard Park, after a member of the public contacted police to report the stolen sedan abandoned in the car park of a unit complex.

Enquiries revealed witnesses saw a man about 178cm tall walk away from the car after doing a burnout in the street around 8pm last night.

Then just after 6pm, patrols were called to Vinrace Street in Adelaide after receiving a call from another member of the public after they realised Simba was with a neighbour. On arrival, police confirmed Simba's identity and thanked the neighbour for caring for him after he was found tied to the front of the house last night.

A short time ago Simba, the 11-month-old Labrador-Staffordshire cross pup, was reunited with his relieved owner at Adelaide Police Station in Grenfell Street.

The patrol "re-paw-ted" they don't normally have such well-behaved rear seat passengers who actually enjoy a ride to the police station.  Make no bones about it - he's one happy puppy and has one "tail" to tell.

Investigations are continuing and anyone with information about this matter is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at
