WAVERLY, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Two warrants have been issued after a vehicle and dog were reported missing on June 27.

On June 27 the Bremer County Sheriff's Office received a report of a stolen Ford F-250 from a house near Highway 63 and 160th Street.

Soon after, authorities were told a golden retriever named "Scooby" was missing from a house near where the truck had been stolen.

Video surveillance from the dog owners home found two men were on the property around 10:30 on June 26. When they left, the video showed Scooby following the men off the property.

After a social media post of the missing dog gained attention, and many tips were given from the public.

An investigation by the Bremer County Sheriff's Office and tips given identified the two men as Terry Shepard, 58, of West Union and Mark Macinnis, 34, of West Union.

Shepard reported his vehicle was missing after it reportedly broke down on an unknown highway in Bremer County.

On June 28, Shepard's vehicle and the missing truck were found at an abandoned property near the residence where the Ford truck was taken from. That same morning in June, Scooby appeared at his owner's house wearing his collar, but his tags were removed. Police believe the dog was dropped off sometime overnight.

On Jully 11, warrants were issued for the two suspects identified in surveillance video. The warrants are issued for operating a vehicle without owner's consent.

An additional warrant was issued on Shepard for false report to a public entity.

Macinnis is being held in the Fayette County Jail and Shepard's warrants are still active.

Authorities say there are no charges expected to the short disappearance of the dog.
