Newark Police return Siberian Husky
Submitted By Newark Police Department
On January 31 a Newark resident noticed transient Robert Maldonado walking what he described as a ÒBeautiful HuskyÓ dog and suspected something was wrong since he had never seen Maldonado with such a nice dog in the past.
It turns out that the dog had gotten out of his yard earlier in the day and the owners had called NPD dispatch asking if NPD could call them if their dog Chloe was located. They described their dog as a 6 year old female Husky.
Later in the day Officer Matt Warren learned that Robert Maldonado was trying to sell the dog. Matt is very passionate about dogs and could not believe someone would try and sell another familyÕs pet. He located Maldonado on Blackwood Dr. and arrested him for four misdemeanor warrants and misappropriation of lost property (Chloe).
Maldonado was booked at Santa Rita Jail and the dog is once again home with its family.
We would like to thank the observant resident for calling us and helping reunite Chloe with her family.
