OCALA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say 17 pit bulls have been taken from a home near Ocala.

A woman who lives in the home told Marion County Sheriff's deputies two female dogs and 15 puppies were locked up in the backyard when she went to dinner on Monday night. When her boyfriend got home a little over an hour later, the dogs were gone.

The Ocala Star-Banner Click Here reports the dogs were in cages off the ground and secured with a barrel-bolt latch. The backyard also has a privacy fence.

Deputies are investigating.

In late May, seven pit bulls were stolen from pens at one Ocala home and five pit bull puppies were stolen from another.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office, or visit This Link.
