INDIANAPOLIS - An Indiana family hopes police and the public can help them find their dog.
Police are looking for the man who stole Jason Breeden’s vehicle from a south-side gas station while his dog was inside.
The theft took place at a Marathon gas station on Thompson Road and State Road 37 early Sunday morning.
Breeden said he was trying to do a favor for a stranger when he stepped away from his car for a minute.
Breeden and his wife, Cassandra, have seen the surveillance video where a man in a grey sweatshirt is seen asking Jason to buy him a pack of cigarettes.
Jason agreed and left the keys in his vehicle and the two can be seen walking into the gas station.
Moments later, the suspect ran outside and stole Breeden's van while his dog, Guy, was in the back seat.
Jason said he couldn’t believe his eyes. He ran out to the empty parking lot, not sure where to turn to next.
He called police, but two days later, nothing has turned up.
The Breedens said they have learned a hard lesson and will never leave their keys in the ignition again.
The family has printed off and passed out dozens of fliers on every side of town.
The missing car is a red/maroon Pontiac Montana. It has a Cadillac license plate cover and tinted windows. The plate number is WCT129.
