WOODLAND, Wash. —

The Cowlitz County sheriff's office says it's tracking down leads and asking the public for help finding whoever is responsible for taking a dog from a Woodland, Wash., woman and holding the animal for ransom.

Jennifer Thomas told the sheriff's office that her English bulldog named Jagger disappeared Oct. 4 and she believes it was stolen.

She received a series of text messages from an unknown caller offering to exchange the dog for cash and prescription drugs.

The sheriff's office says the dog is valued at $1,900. Sheriff Mark Nelson says, "We take cases like this very seriously." He adds that he has had multiple deputies working on it.
