EVERETT, Mass. (AP/WBZ-AM) — A Boston woman has been reunited with her beloved dog, which was in the rear seat of her SUV when it was stolen from outside of a city store over the weekend.
Chief, an 8-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, was found safe inside the SUV at Woodlawn Cemetery in Everett Monday and has been reconnected with owner Rosa Nese.
A Boston man is under arrest in relation to this case. David Brady, 50, was captured in East Boston after a foot chase around 6:00 p.m. Monday. An MBTA officer also assisted in the arrest.
Nese says she had just visited her mother's grave when she stopped at an East Boston convenience store at about 8:45 a.m. Sunday.
She left the vehicle running, with the windows cracked and air conditioning on because Chief was in the back.
When she came out minutes later, both were gone.
Surveillance video shows a man walking through the parking lot, then getting in the SUV and driving away. No arrests have been made.
