A Michigan family is happy to have their sweet puppy back home after what was supposed to be an ordinary delivery ended in heartbreak.
Ashley Swinton was expecting a food delivery to her home on New Year's Day from DoorDash,WXYZreports.
According to the news outlet, when the individual went to make the delivery, she left with the family's 8-week-old puppy named Bella.
The woman was caught on camera taking the dog.
“The video evidence, in this case, is very compelling,” said Detective Brian Price with Warren police. “This is a new one even for me. Pretty shocking when you watch the video and see it happen right in front of you.”
“You can see her pet the dog, (and) rub the dog seeing if it was vicious," Swinton toldWXYZ. "Then scoop the dog up and take the dog to her car.”
Police found the 26-year-old, who has not been identified yet. Charges are expected.
“They admitted to stealing the dog," Price said. "I recovered the dog from the scene. Still in good health. We returned it to the family.”
