POLICE are appealing for witnesses after a pet dog was drugged during a burglary in Worsbrough.

Thieves also stole a motorbike from the property.

Police say that between 9.10pm on Monday 23 May and 6.50am the following morning, offenders broke into a shed at a house in Elmsdale.

An orange KTM motorbike, registration FP53FXM, was taken from the address.

PC John Bailey, the investigating officer, said: "We are looking into whether the person who took the bike gave the dog at the property something which made her particularly drowsy.

"I would ask anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious to contact police on 101 quoting incident number 125 of 24 May 2016."
