UPDATE: The suspect has been identified. We thank the public and the media for their assistance.
We are asking for the public’s help to identify a man believed to be responsible for a vehicle theft in the community of Cranston, that resulted in the theft of a dog who was located five days later in the community of Auburn Bay.
On Saturday, Aug. 27, 2022, at approximately 8 p.m., we were called for reports of a vehicle theft that occurred in the 0 – 100 block of Cranford Way S.E. The victim’s dog was in the vehicle at the time of the incident.
While the vehicle, a 2022 Volkswagen Jetta, was abandoned in the community of Ogden shortly after the theft occurred, the victim’s dog was not located until five days later. A Good Samaritan found the dog running in the community of Auburn Bay and returned the dog to the victim.
