Dog owners beware. In a Lost and Found Pets Group on Facebook, a local woman has warned dog owners that there is a utility van going around trying to steal dogs. Allegedly, her boyfriend’s parents had their dog in the front yard as they were doing yard work in the back.
They heard the dog growling and when they went to check on the pet, there were people trying to get the dog, a Newfoundland dog, into a van. The pet owners yelled out and the drivers of the utility van drove off.
The pet owners were unable to see a license plate, but describe the vehicle as a white van with the back windows blacked out. This incident occurred on Korah Road by Rossmore Street.
