Burnaby, B.C. Dognapping Caught on Camera

Burnaby, BC – The Burnaby RCMP is looking to identify two individuals related to an alleged theft of an 11-year-old Yorkshire Terrier from her owner’s yard.

Around 2:40 p.m., August 10, 2020, in the 6000-block of Berwick Street, a Yorkshire Terrier (Lucy) had been left harnessed in the yard of her home. Two men approached, driving a newer model Jaguar sedan, exited their vehicle and entered the yard. After somehow being released from her harness, Lucy was chased down the street by the two would-be capturers. A nearby resident, having seen the two men chase Lucy, offered her aid after the men identified the dog as having belonged to them.
