WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) – Police say a DoorDash worker who delivered food to the Michigan home dropped off the food but then left with her family’s 8-week-old pup.
Right after New Years, police used surveillance video to chase leads after an 8-week-old puppy named Bella was stolen from Ashley Swinton’s home in Warren, Michigan. The crime, which was allegedly committed by a 26 year old DoorDash delivery driver, was caught on camera.
“You can see him petting the dog, rubbing the dog. I guess he’s trying to see if the dog is fierce or something. Then, you see he picked up the dog and immediately took him to the car, “said Swinton recalled the video.
With help from DoorDash, police say they tracked down the delivery driver, who allegedly confessed to the crime. He did not explain his actions.
“They invited this person to deliver food to their house and trust them to do their job, and they delivered food but obviously took something that wasn’t theirs,” said Detective Brian Price of the Warren Police Department.
The police find Bella and return her to the Swintons, who got the puppy for Christmas.
“If you can take a dog, you can take someone’s, you can take a key, you name it. We don’t just do things like that, “said Swinton.
It is hoped that the charges in this case will be filed soon.
