MPD Reunites Stolen Dog with Owner

A puppy is back with its owner today after officers from District Two of the Milwaukee Police Department recovered the animal that was stolen last week. The theft happened on January 14 in the 2100 block of S. 15th Street when a woman picked up the three month-old Chihuahua and fled on foot. During the investigation, officers found video of the suspect walking outside a local restaurant. Pictures of the suspect were sent to the media and distributed to District Two officers. Officers recognized the woman in the photograph and were able to identify her as the suspect. The 20-year-old Milwaukee woman was taken into custody on January 18. During questioning, the suspect confessed to taking the dog. In those four days, the animal changed hands many times but officers were eventually able to find the dog on January 21 and reunite it with its thankful owner. Milwaukee Police will present charges in this case against the suspect to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days. Check out the pictures below from the happy reunion at District Two!
