Caught On Camera: Man Steals Dog, Do You Know HIM?

Posted:
TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

 A Tulare County family is hurt and upset, after a man steals their Bulldog puppy.
Jean Chamberlain says Tuesday night a man took the dog out of her home.
The dog's name was Cash.
Chamberlain says, "He was out of here in about 10 minutes. He was shaking hands and meeting everyone. Then his phone rings and he answers it and says I'll be right out."
Chamberlain was selling the runt of the litter on craigslist.
She says the man told her it was a surprise for his wife. So she snapped a couple of pictures of him holding the dog.
Little did she know at the time, those pictures may help bring an end to this dog napping case?
She says the man asked for a bottle of water and that gave just him enough time to pick up the dog, run out the door, jump into his car and take off.
He left everything from paperwork, to food, but more important the dogs medicine for its hurt eye.
Chamberlain says, "He jumped in the car and shot off down the road. Then we never saw him again."
Donnie Hickman helped raise the puppy.
Hickman says, "It breaks my heart. I watched him for 10 weeks and that was the last one. With a little cherry eye, he was getting ready to go get fixed on March 11th. He could go blind if this guy doesn't watch it."
Hickman says they were advertising the pup for $1,600 on craigslist.
Because Cash the pup was worth a lot of cash, if caught the guy is caught he could face felony grand theft charges.
Hickman says he just wants the guy to bring Cash back home.
Hickman says, "No questions asked, just drop him over the fence and I'll hear him."
Anyone with information is urged to call the Tulare County Sheriff's Department at (559) 733-6218.
