Sydney CBD dognapping victim reunited with owner
A four-year-old female Pitbull Terrier named ‘Baxter’ has been reunited with her owner, after being stolen from outside a store in the Sydney CBD.
Baxter was tied up at the intersection of George and Liverpool Streets at around 8:30pm last Friday, but had disappeared by the time her owner returned.
Last night a 38-year-old man returned the pitbull at a CBD police station, and was arrested and charged with stealing the dog.
Detective Inspector Matthew Little told Jim Wilson police were excited to see Baxter returned.
“You couldn’t have seen a happier dog I don’t think, and to know that Baxter has gone back to … [her] family … it really does make us feel happy, there’s no doubt about that.”
