A woman in South Carolina is desperate to find her dog, who was inside of her car when it was stolen from a gas station in North Charleston. According to Count on 2 News, the dog, who is blind, was inside of Maria Rojas-Lucas car on Saturday morning when an opportunistic thief took advantage of Rojas-Lucas’ mistake.
The dog, Teddy, was inside of Rojas-Lucas’ car which was at the Exxon on Rivers Avenue. Teddy’s owner went inside to pay when she encountered a problem with her debit car – her critical error was leaving her keys inside of the vehicle. Someone took advantage of the situation and drove away in her 2005 Toyota Scion XB.
She commented on the loss of her beloved dog, “I’m worried about because the person who stole my car may hurt him, may kill him. I just want him back again.” She added, “It doesn’t matter the other stuff, the materials, I don’t care. I mean I do, but I care more about my dog. He’s sick and blind and I am the only one to take care of him. He’s like my baby.”
Getting Teddy home
A $100 reward is offered for Teddy’s safe return. Teddy is a six-year-old Maltese mix who has a microchip. The stolen car is a white 2005 Toyota Scion XB with the South Carolina license plate PVN-434. If you know where the car or the dog may be, contact the North Charleston Police Department at (843) 740-2800 or Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111.
