Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

We told you earlier about Wes Covington, a resident of northwest Harris County who was burglarized.

Thieves made off with custom-made guitars -- one signed by Buddy Guy -- but, more importantly, Covington's dog Charlie went missing.

Either the thieves took the boxer, or the dog escaped through the door that had been forced open. (After failing to scare away the burglars, we won't mention.)

Covington and his wife cared more about getting Charlie back than the other stuff that was taken, and their hopes have been realized: Someone found the dog and returned him last night.

The guitars? Still out there.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
