A woman in Tennessee allegedly stole a puppy from a Murfreesboro pet store by placing the dog underneath her shirt.

Stealing a pet is a serious crime, as it puts the animal’s life in potential danger.

A woman in Tennessee allegedly stole a puppy from a Murfreesboro pet store by placing the dog underneath her shirt.

The female walked into the shop with a male companion. After looking at the pets, the female picked up and held a 12-week-old Pekingese puppy.

An employee at the store stated “She picked up the puppy, was holding him for a little bit, walked down the aisle and lifted up her shirt. As soon as that puppy was under there, she walked out.”

The puppy was valued at approximately $700. The theft occurred on a weekday and local media outlets soon began airing the story along with the female suspect’s face as she had been caught on surveillance footage.

A local police officer caught one of the media reports and recognized the woman as his next-door neighbor. While the circumstances remain unclear, the puppy was thankfully returned to the store unharmed.
