ARDMORE, Pa. —Residents of Philadelphia neighbourhood Main Line, are on high-alert as more dogs are stolen from people’s front yards. According to flyers posted around the neighbourhood, which are titled “Protect Your Dog Now!”, there has been a couple driving around in a tan car, stealing people’s pets. Now one man has caught the couple in the act, as they attempted to snatch his own dog, Willie. The victim Sumanth Joseph, caught the entire incident on a home surveillance camera but was fortunate enough to stop the couple before they drove off with Willie.
Joseph reveals that he spotted the couple in front of his home, as they started to pull Willie through the front of their gold Honda CRV. Just as the dog was halfway through the window, the man ran out to confront them, when they lied about their intentions and said that they thought Willie belonged to one of their neighbours. Shortly after though, Joseph came across the flyers in the neighbourhood, which alerted him to their lies.
There has not been much information released about the dog-nappers other than, that it is a male and female duo and that they are driving a gold Honda CRV. To-date there are as many as five dogs missing. Residents are being told to keep a close eye on their pets and to not leave them unattended in the front yard, while this matter is resolved.
