STAFFORD, Va. – Two men and a juvenile have been arrested after deputies say they stole a vehicle with a dog inside from a Stafford County Wawa convenience store.

Deputies say on May 23, 2018, at approximately 8:18 a.m., they responded to the Wawa on Garrisonville Road for a reported larceny in progress.

When deputies arrived at the scene, the victim reported that her car was stolen from the parking lot and a dog was inside, along with her wallet and social security card.

The female victim, who was a veterinarian, said the dog belonged to a customer.

After reviewing security video, deputies observed three suspects enter the victim’s vehicle and drive away.

The dog ran away from the crash scene but was later located safely.
