– Scotland Yard statement
We are aware of comments made by serving MPS officer on a social networking site.
The officer reported this matter on Wednesday 10 April to the Directorate of Professional Standards who is now looking at this.
The officerworks in an operational support role within service.
He is not a frontline police officer. We are not prepared to discuss further.
The man who took Ted is described as white, of medium build and in his 20s with short cropped light-brown/ginger hair and a tattoo on the left side of his neck.
He was wearing a dark top, white T-shirt, jeans and white trainers.
The family were so relieved to get Ted back safe and well. Officers attended their address to see him fast asleep on the sofa and looking forward to a hearty chicken dinner that evening after his ordeal.
This case really does show the part social media can play in fighting crime - we think there was so much publicity about Ted that he was literally too hot to hold.
He became instantly recognisable as a stolen dog and the people who took him were desperate to get rid of him as soon as possible.
– Acting Detective Sergeant Louise Smith, from Barnet police
We are now making enquiries into the woman who dropped Ted off and into the man who stole him from outside Tesco.
If you have any information please come forward.
An elderly lady has been reunited with her stolen dog thanks to the Met's Twitter followers.
Ted, a brown King Charles spaniel, was taken by a man outside Tesco Express in Barnet on December 8.
Barnet police ran a media appeal on their website and Tweeted the story out, asking people if a dog like Ted had suddenly appeared in their neighbourhood. Ted's family also circulated the appeal via Twitter and Facebook.
The appeal was re-tweeted a staggering 52,820 times by dog lovers, making Ted "too hot to hold".
Last Wednesday the family were contacted and told to meet a person close to where Ted had been taken. There a woman handed over Ted to the owner's son-in-law and then fled.
