Woman Reunited With Her Dog That Was Stolen On 1st Date
DOVER, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey woman has been reunited with her Yorkshire Terrier and flat-screen TV that were snatched during her first date with a man she met online.
The woman called police to say her dog, Violet, had been tied by its leash to the TV and left in the front yard of her Dover home early Saturday. She says Violet appeared healthy.
Authorities say the pair met on a dating site and went out Thursday night. When they returned to her home, the woman stepped into another room. When she re-emerged, the man, the dog and the TV were gone.
The woman said she knew the man only as "Joel." Police said Saturday they know the man's identity and charges could be filed.
