###Original Message###

Today, Friday January 13, 2012, Portland Police Bureau detectives helped facilitate the return of several stolen rabbits to their rightful owner.

The rabbits were reported stolen on January 7, 2012 from the home of a rabbit supplier associated with the Portland Meat Collective. Initial reports were that 23 rabbits were stolen but after a closer evaluation by the victims, it was actually 18 rabbits.

Information was developed by the victim that the 18 rabbits were dropped off at a Rabbit Advocacy location in Portland.

Detective Darrell Miller of the Portland Police Bureau worked with both the Rabbit Advocacy group and the Portland Meat Collective and the supplier to return 17 of the 18 stolen rabbits. The remaining one rabbit was adopted and the investigation on its whereabouts is continuing.

Detective Miller would like to hear from anyone with information about the theft of the rabbits. No arrests have been made in this case.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Detective Darrell Miller at (503) 823-4783 or Darrell.Miller@PortlandOregon.gov
