It’s horrible to have anything stolen from you. You feel as though a part of you is gone and even when you get it back, this thing which you loved will always be a reminder of that sensation of loss. So imagine the shock when a Fort Greene man had his dog stolen from him and then the thieves tried to sell the animal back to him.
It went down on Carlton and Myrtle Aves. These two goons took their liberties with someone’s dog, a dog the owner had left in the care of his best friend. According to Brooklyn Paper (1) “The victim said his best friend was in a fenced-in lot near the intersection at noon when the thieves absconded with the animal.” These two criminals must have been yelping mad because “A short time later they called the victim, offering a cash trade.”
The thieves wanted two hundred big ones in exchange for the unharmed animal. “But by then cops were already onto their scent, arresting the thieves a few blocks away with the stolen canine.”
The thief always returns to the scene of his crime. Just not usually because they’re looking to be paid off.
