Dog stolen outside downtown Dollarama located in Scarborough: police

Police say a dog stolen Wednesday morning outside a downtown dollar store has now been reunited with its owners after the pet was located in Scarborough.

According to dog owner Monica Furman, her 12-year-old Chihuahua mix Spender was tied up outside Dollarama near Dundas Street West and Dovercourt Road around 6 p.m.

She said she went inside to shop with her daughter for about five or ten minutes, and when she came back outside, the dog was gone.

“I do not know what the motivation was behind taking him. We just want him back,” she told CP24 on Wednesday.

A photo of the suspect, who police believe took the dog, was released shortly afterwards, and Thursday morning police confirmed the dog had been found in Scarborough.

The exact location of Scarborough was not disclosed.

Police say a suspect has been remanded in custody, but investigators have not confirmed what charges may be raised.
