On the same day that surveillance video showing a bold dog-napping situation in Washington, DC, the case was resolved. According to NBC Washington, the police released the video showing the puppy being stolen from a fenced yard on Thursday and shortly thereafter, the puppy was found and returned to his owner.
Cruz, a four-month-old retriever, had been snatched out of his owner’s yard in mid-October. Surveillance video, which was released weeks after the actual dog-napping, showed two people walking outside of the yard which is surrounded by chain-link fencing. One person can be seen grabbing the puppy by the collar and then walking away with the puppy in tow.
The puppy’s owner, who opted to remain anonymous, told NBC Washington that the puppy was returned by the authorities on Thursday night – details about how the puppy was found remain a mystery.
