Dog missing after NE robbery

By Washington Post editors

A Northeast Washington man came home to discover his house ransacked...and his beloved Rhodesian Ridgeback stolen WUSA reports.

"I'm hurt. I'm angry. I want my dog back," said owner Kevin Fitzgerald.

Thieves smashed a basement window to enter the house in the quiet Northeast neighborhood of Woodridge sometime between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. They stole television sets, laptop computers, electronics.

WUSA reported that the dog, Chuma, was inside the house in a crate when the robbery occurred, so it's clear he was stolen and didn't simply escape. Another dog carrier of his was abandoned in a back alley.

Fitzgerald is offering a $1,000 reward for the safe return of his dog. No questions asked.
