Ciri, a 10-month-old puppy, was found and returned to its owners by Westminster police. The animal was inside the vehicle at 5 a.m. Sunday when it was stolen, KDVR reported. 

Cheliesa Anderson said her family was moving from Texas to Oregon and stopped at a relative’s house in Arvada, Colorado, KMGH reported. As the family packed to leave Sunday, the fob to operate the push-to-start vehicle was left inside the car, and someone jumped into the car and drove away, the television station reported.

"A lot of the stuff in there was expensive and irreplaceable, like my mom's ashes and her jewelry, her pearls and stuff like that," Anderson told KMGH.

Early Wednesday, Arvada police said the vehicle was spotted and a chase ensued, KDVR reported. The vehicle was stopped and the suspects were arrested, the television station reported.

“Around 4 a.m. is when they called us. It was involved in a high-speed chase," Anderson told KDVR.

Police did not release any information about the suspects, the television station reported.
