Riley, Missing Puppy

CHARLOTTE – A 5-month-old puppy was stolen from a Northeast Charlotte home Wednesday morning.  The dog-napping was all caught on camera.

“He’s about 5-months-old and 25 pounds.  He’s brindle colored.”  said the dog’s owner Traci Drury.  

Her husband, Ray, came home for lunch Wednesday only to find the dog missing.  At first they though maybe the dog somehow got out of the fence.  Hours later, surveillance cameras from two neighbors homes helped them piece together what actually happened. The surveillance videos show two boys walking back and forth for a few minutes.  They it clearly shows the boys heading down the street with the puppy in one of the boys arms.

The family tracked down one lead, but came up empty.

The Drury’s recently adopted the puppy from the Humane Society.  They hope neighbors in the Mallard Creek- Johnson Oehler Road area will helm bring Riley home.

An officer contacted the family late Friday and took the surveillance video.  So far there is no news on suspects.  Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said it is a felony to steal an animal.

If you have any information on Riley anyone related to this case, please contact Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police at 704-336-7600.
