A woman who dumped a bag containing seven 3-day-old puppies behind an auto parts store in Coachella on Thursday is being sought by Riverside County animal control and law enforcement officials.
Officials say store surveillance video shows a woman with long dark hair, dressed in a dark blue or black tank top and skirt, pulled up in a Jeep next to a trash bin outside the Napa Auto Parts store at 49251 Grapefruit Blvd. just after 1 p.m.
The video shows the woman getting out of the vehicle carrying a plastic bag. She walked toward a bin used for recycling materials, opened the lid and then dropped the bag in, and drove away, animal services officials said Friday in a press release.
