Yesterday, the police released a video of a woman who stole a gold chain from a Bronx jewelry store. It's a pretty routine video, with about a minute of the woman posing as a customer and feigning interest in the item until she calmly leaves the store. Then comes a flurry of excitement—not only does the store's owner run after her, so do two little dogs!
According to the police, the incident took place in the 52nd Precinct, at the Kings Jewelry store on East Kingsbridge Road. A suspect, described as a black woman around 5'3" and 20-30 years old, entered the store and asked to see a gold necklace. Apparently, when the clerk was letting another person enter, the suspect left! And, as you can see in the video, one little dog follows her, then the owner (who might be barefoot?) and then another little dog! If there were three little dogs, we're sure they would have nabbed her.
