Pomeranian taken from parked car returned to owner


WALLINGFORD, Conn. — An anxiety-ridden Pomeranian named Casper who was stolen from a car parked at the Staples Plaza on North Colony Road Tuesday night has been safely returned to his owner.

Police say they received a 911 call from Casper’s owner around 8:51 p.m. on Tuesday night, and responded to the Staples Plaza at 1145 North Colony Road. The 12-year-old Pomeranian was left in an Audi Quattro convertible with the windows cracked, while his owner and her friend dined in a nearby restaurant from roughly 8 to 8:45 p.m.

At 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Wallingford police say Diana Brandi of Bristol came into the Wallingford Police Department carrying Casper. Police say Brandi is a real-estate broker and saw Casper sitting on the front lawn of a home she was showing in Meriden around 12:30 Wednesday afternoon. She said after showing the house, the dog was still on the lawn and was shaking. She brought the dog home where a friend told her it looked like the missing dog from Wallingford. Brandi then drove to Wallingford with the dog.

Police say Casper’s owner was notified, came to the police station and was reunited with Casper. Casper appeared to be in good health and was happy to see his owner.

The investigation into Casper’s theft is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (203)294-2805.
