ARRESTS MADE IN LADY GAGA DOG-NAPPING

As you might recall, back in February two of Lady Gaga’s French Bulldogs - Koji and Gustav - were kidnapped and her dog walker was shot in the process. A $500-thousand reward was promised and a few days later, Koji and Gustav were returned by a woman claiming she found them in an alley.

Police have now arrested five people, with three of them - 18-year-old James Jackson,19-year-old Jaylin White and 27-year-old Lafayette Whaley, facing charges of attempted murder and robbery. On top of that, 40-year-old Harold White and 50-year-oldJennifer McBride, were arrested on charges of accessories to attempted murder.

One of those arrested, McBride, is the woman who returned the dogs. Not surprisingly, cops reportedly had their suspicions about McBride when she handed over the puppos...and they told Gaga to hold off paying her the $500K reward. Jackson, who is believed to the be shooter is being held on $3-million bail, while McBride remains on house arrest. The judge overseeing the case has ordered that none of the defendants' pictures are to be released.
