Police seek public’s help locating dog theft suspect

Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the man who stole a dog from a store in the Western Addition earlier this month.

The dog, a 5-year-old Chihuahua and poodle mix named “Catfish,” and its owner were in a store in the 1300 block of Divisadero Street on March 12 when the theft occurred, police said Wednesday.

The victim was picking up some items when he realized he couldn’t find his dog, police said.

He went to the store manager, who located surveillance video of a man stealing the dog and leaving the store. The suspect was seen wearing a red shirt and camouflage-type pants.

Anyone with information about the theft is urged to contact Northern Station Investigators at 415-614-3400, the Anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
