The woman who found Lady Gaga‘s dogs still has not received her reward money.

According to TMZ, authorities believe the dognappers may have been part of a gang initiation and told the singer not to pay the $500,000 until cops are confident that the finder was not involved in the crime.

Sources tell the site that the authorities don’t believe the woman was a part of the petnapping attempt but they need to determine if she had any involvement after the fact.
