MARYSVILLE -- A woman who was arrested for investigation of a September dog-napping in Marysville is no longer a suspect.
Charges in Marysville Municipal Court have been dropped against the Snohomish County woman, 59, officials said.
Detectives interviewed the woman and were in contact with other people who knew her.
"It pretty much gave her an alibi and cleared her," Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux said Thursday.
The woman is affiliated with an animal rescue group. She was booked into the Marysville jail for investigation of third-degree theft, second-degree animal cruelty and second-degree criminal trespass.
The woman initially had been identified by a witness and was taken into custody after showing up at the police department.
Lamoureux said police are continuing to investigate who stole Takoda, an 8-year-old Siberian husky, from her Marysville yard on Sept. 24. A neighbor's surveillance video showed a woman pulling the dog into a sport utility vehicle. The case caught the attention of animal lovers around the world.
Takoda was returned to her family earlier this month at the Marysville police station. The reunion was set up by an attorney who represented an unnamed client who was in possession of the dog.
Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 360-363-8300.
