COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office says a family dog named Hercules was stolen from its Comstock Township home.

Deputies say Hercules was taken Sunday morning from its home at 94 Parcom St.

While searching for him, the owner found people who stated they saw a white man on a bike with Hercules around 7 a.m. in the area of the Kalamazoo Valley River Trail near Kings Highway and River Street, according to the sheriff’s office.

Authorities say Hercules is a 1 year and 4 month old purebred pit bull wearing a black collar with his identification tags.
