Update 8/24/17: Maggie has been found!
A family dog was snatched by a man who went on a Tinder date with an 18-year-old pet and house-sitter. According to multiple sources, the incident took place on Sunday at a house in Leonia, New Jersey.
The man who was secured by the online dating application showed up to the residence with another man. The duo apparently were in cahoots…one distracted the teen while the other went to work to snag items out of the home, including the family’s young Maltese, “Maggie.”
The two-year-old dog was whisked away without the young woman’s knowledge – after the men left, she realized that a laptop, Amazon package and the dog were all gone.
The police have not yet made any arrests in this case – anyone with information is asked to call the Leonia Police Department at 1-201-944-0800.
Hard lesson for this young girl to learn…you never know who you will meet on Tinder. You might go on a date with people who aren’t what they claim to be, or worse, a full blown criminal. Please share to help get Maggie back to her worried family.
