Police say they have found a pickup truck with a Rottweiler inside, stolen from a parking lot in Vaughan on Tuesday night in an apparent “warm-up theft.”
York Regional Police say that just after 7 p.m. on Tuesday, a man left his 2009 Honda Ridgeline running outside a convenience store in the area of Highway 7 and Martin Grove Road.
His two-year-old Rottweiler was sitting in the truck’s back seat.
When he returned from the store, the truck and dog were gone.
About two-and-a-half hours later, police found the truck and dog abandoned in a plaza near Martin Grove and Silverstone Drive, about 3 kilometres south of where the vehicle was taken.
Police continue to warn motorists not to leave their vehicles running unattended.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7400, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
