A Pomeranian that was stolen from outside a grocery store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn has been reunited with its owner.
Seven-year-old Suki was only outside the store for five minutes early Sunday morning when it was taken.
”I thought it was a bad dream I thought. Maybe it is a family member," said Guadalupe Garcia.
A representative for Garcia told Fox 5 News that she had received a call Monday night about the dog and a middle person who would return the animal. The woman, seen on surveillance video taking the dog, said she did so by mistake.
Suki and Garcia were reunited at about 10 p.m.
Garcia’s only consolation at the time of its disappearance was that that the entire incident was captured on several of the store's surveillance cameras..
It showed Guadalupe walking up to the store with her two friends and tying Suki to a railing outside the store around 3:30am.
About a minute later, the suspect's white Camry pulls up to the store.
The suspect, a woman wearing a reddish shirt, is seen buying flowers. As she leaves the store, she pets Suki, walks away, then appears to hesitate..
She turns around, looks to see if anyone is watching, then takes off running with Suki under her arm.
Guadalupe posted fliers and used social media to find Suki.
She also had this message for the woman who took him: “We just want Suki back, we want our family member back, we beg you” Garcia said.
