A Colorado man claims that his puppy, and other personal items, were stolen by two Hispanic men who robbed him when he stopped to help a woman and baby who appeared to be in need of assistance. As reported by KDVR News, on the afternoon of December 29, Neal Hefty stopped to help a woman who claimed to be stranded on the road in Greeley. He told the news agency, “She told me she was having car problems and she had a little baby in the car. So, I thought I’ll pull in and I’ll see what I can do.”
The elaborate scheme
But the “stranded” woman appeared to be nothing more than part of a plot to commit a crime – Hefty explained what transpired when he stopped to help, “Two Hispanic guys come out from behind the skatepark, and one had .38 pistol.” The men wanted cash, but when Hefty told them he didn’t have any, they opted to steal his groceries, and his puppy, Patch. Hefty wants the men to be apprehended and he desperately hopes to see his 10-week-old shepherd/husky mix puppy again; he said, “I just want the pup back. I don’t care about nothing else.”
The men who robbed Hefty were said to be driving a bright green Honda Civic with plates from Mexico. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Greeley police: 970-350-9605.
