Woman caught on video stealing dogs in the Bronx; suspect arrested

A day after the New York City Police Department released security video showing a woman stealing dogs from an alley in the Bronx, officers made an arrest.

The video, released Wednesday, shows the woman entering an alley at 1439 Prospect Avenue at about 9:40 a.m. on Nov. 9  where a 33-year-old woman had left her four dogs, police said. The dog-napper apparently put the pooches in a red SUV. 

On Thursday, police arrested and charged Kennedy Rivera, 20, of the Bronx, with third-degree grand larceny.
