ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Police say a woman stole a 9-week-old Yorkshire terrier from an Orlando pet shop, left it in a trash bin behind the store and then called to say she was sorry.
Orlando police arrested 25-year-old Carolina Mejia Urbina on a grand theft charge Thursday.
She’s accused of taking the puppy worth $1,300 from The Puppy Stop on Wednesday.
Store owner Victoria Glatz tells the Orlando Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1WQyLI8 ) a woman called the store Wednesday night, saying she had stolen the dog and left it in a cloth bag.
Glatz says she texted Urbina on Thursday and convinced her to meet at a nearby cafe. Orlando police were waiting there and arrested Urbina.
Urbina was taken to jail. It’s unclear whether she’s hired a lawyer.
Glatz says the puppy is doing well.
