According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, the 15-year-old was charged with two counts of armed robbery on Friday in juvenile court. The charges were filed by the police.

In the past few years, a number of burglaries that occurred in the Los Angeles area targeted French bulldogs because of the high price that these canines can command on the black market.

The most high-profile incident occurred in February 2021, when two men leaped out of a car in Hollywood and shot Lady Gaga’s dog walker in the chest, which resulted in the theft of two of Lady Gaga’s bulldogs.
