Police: Van with 14 show dogs stolen from California lot
REDDING, Calif. (AP) — Police are looking for a van with more than a dozen show dogs inside that was stolen from the parking lot of a Northern California fast-food restaurant when the owner left it running to get food.
Redding police say the 2018 Dodge cargo van was taken on Wednesday.
Tony Carter, a professional dog trainer who owns the van, told the Record Searchlight of Redding that he left it running and unlocked with the air conditioning on to keep the dogs cool and ordered food at a local In-N-Out in the afternoon.
The van was gone in minutes.
Carter said the dogs were in the back of the van, which does not have windows.
They were headed to a dog show in the San Francisco Bay Area.
