SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- San Francisco animal rescuers said a puppy stolen from an adoption center was recovered and the woman seen with her was busted on a drug charge.

Krista Maloney, spokeswoman for the San Francisco Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said a terrier mix puppy named Violet was stolen Oct. 16 when she was left in an observation room by an attendant and an adoption center employee spotted the puppy walking with a woman Friday, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday.

Police were called and officers arrested Sonya Espinoza, 19, on suspicion of drug possession. Police said they are trying to determine how Espinoza obtained the canine.

The adoption center worker was awarded a $500 prize for finding the dog.
