Lady Gaga’s dog walker is finally getting some justice as his alleged attackers have just been arrested… and in a surprising twist of events, the woman that turned in Gaga’s two dogs to the cops was actually in on it too — let’s get into it.
On Thursday, TMZ reported that the LAPD arrested five people in connection with the brutal attack of Ryan Fischer, Gaga’s dog walker, as well as the kidnapping of her two dogs. Three of these suspects, whose ages vary from 18 to 27 years old, were charged with one count each of attempted murder, conspiracy to commit robbery, and second-degree robbery.
The other two suspects were charged with one count each of accessory after the fact. A break in the case came after authorities found footage of the pets being dropped off just a couple of days after the February 24th robbery. And it turns out that the alleged perpetrators are indeed gang members who targeted the French bulldogs because of their high value.
According to the Daily Mail, this breed of dogs can be sold for as much as 10 thousand dollars! It’s worth noting, though, the police claim that the suspects were not aware that those particular French bulldogs belonged to Lady Gaga.
As for the two additional perps, one of them is a known gang member who also happens to be the father of one of the young alleged criminals tied to this case.
And get this, this crook’s girlfriend is actually the person who turned the dogs into the cops after Gaga made public that she was offering half a million dollars to anyone who’d bring her back her pets.
Well, it’s a good thing that Gaga didn’t pay out the reward right away because the authorities suspected that this person could’ve been connected to the dog-stealing ring. The alleged criminal surrendered the dogs at LAPD’s Olympic Station, only seven miles from West Hollywood, where the pups had been stolen a couple of nights before.
The couple is accused of acting as accessories after the fact by helping conceal the stolen animals, and all five suspects are being held on a $1 million bail, according to TMZ. It’s a miracle that Ryan survived this attempted murder, and not too long ago, he took to his social media to post pictures and some good news about his recovery.
Unfortunately, he also mentioned that he had to have one of his lungs removed in one of the multiple surgeries he underwent following the assault. We, of course, hope that Ryan continues to recover and that he gets all the emotional support he needs to overcome this horrific crime.
And if you’re also wondering about the pups, well, Koji and Gustav have been reunited with Miss Asia, and now all three are back together with their loving mom Lady Gaga.
