At this time, Mitchell, Delcampo, and Brown have been arrested and charged with burglary, grand theft and dealing in stolen property, while Galarza is wanted and has an active arrest warrant for accessory after the fact.
Mitchell also has a side hustle as a strong armed robber and was also charged with robbery by sudden snatching for a separate incident after he was caught on video snatching the purse of a 77 year old woman and pushing her to the ground in the Publix Parking lot at the Saint Lucie West shopping center back in August.
Detectives continue to investigate this incident as there are 13 remaining stolen French bulldogs still at large. The 6 recovered bulldogs have been reunited with their owner. If you have any information about this case or believe you may have purchased a bulldog from one of these suspects, please call Detectives at 772-871-5172.
I’m glad to see all 4 of these mutts are adults.
