A Jerusalem resident was taken in for questioning on Sunday after the city police fraud-squad tracked down the Jewish man as the prime suspect in a case of forged pedigree certificates for Chihuahua puppies.
The police launched the investigation following a complaint from the Israel Kennel Club on fraudulent papers being produced and sold, and managed to track down the suspect. In a search in his abode three different certificates for three different puppies, all under aliases, were found, as well as blank certificates, believed to be meant for use. The suspect admitted in his investigation to selling three Chihuahua puppies, which were not pure-bred, for varying sums.
The suspect was released on bail, and the investigation continues.
