Service dog stolen in Post Falls is back home

From staff reports

A Yorkshire terrier named Bridgett that was inside a car stolen Oct. 8 in Post Falls has been found and returned to her owner.

The white 1999 Ford Escort, stolen in the 3200 block of W. Box Canyon Drive, was recovered Oct. 11 in Spokane, but the 4½-year-old black Yorkie, described as a service dog, was not inside, the sheriff’s office said. An update posted on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page Wednesday said the dog had been recovered and was back home with her owner.

The car was stolen after the owner left it parked momentarily about 11 a.m. on Oct. 8, with the dog, a purse and an overnight bag inside. About 20 minutes later a woman tried to use the victim’s debit card at a convenience store in the Spokane area. Investigators are trying to identify the woman, seen in a surveillance photo.
