Small Dog Stolen From Walgreens In San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) -- San Francisco police Wednesday asked the public for help in locating a man who stole a small dog from a Walgreens store near Alamo Square earlier this month.

The victim was in the store in the 1300 block of Divisadero Street on March 11 with his dog, a 5-year-old male Chihuahua-poodle crossbreed named Catfish, when the theft occurred, police said.

The victim picked up some items and then could not locate his dog.  When he contacted the store manager for help, the manager was able to find surveillance video of a suspect taking the dog and contacted police with the video the next day.

The suspect was last seen wearing a red shirt and camouflage pants.

Police have released photos of the both the suspect and Catfish, and are asking anyone with information to call the department's Northern Station at (415) 614-3400 or an anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. Tips can also be texted to TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
