Pit bull puppy pinched in Woodbridge
A pit bull puppy named Charlie intended as a high school graduation gift was reported stolen from an unlocked truck outside a convenience store in Woodbridge, Prince William Police said Tuesday.
The alleged taking of the dog -- which counts as a possible grand larceny -- occurred at about 5:30 p.m. Friday in the 14500 block of Jefferson Davis Highway when, according to police spokeswoman Erika Hernandez, the truck owner made a quick stop at the store and left the dog inside his open vehicle.
A police report said three men who appeared to be between 18 and 25 drove into the store lot in a red sedan and looked inside the truck before one opened the driver's side door and removed Charlie, Hernandez said.
The puppy is a gray pit bull with a white nose purchased as a high school graduation gift for the daughter of the truck's driver, according to police.
