A woman desperately searches for her two dogs after the vehicle they were in was stolen in the River North neighborhood of Chicago on Thursday afternoon.
The 33-year-old owner of a Maltipoo named Karmen and a Shih Tzu mix named Franklin says the animals were in her car when it was stolen near the intersection of Huron and Wells around 3 p.m. Thursday.
The owner says the car was locked, but the sunroof was left open while she was picking up an item from an area business. She also had the vehicle keys.
The thief climbed through the sunroof, managed to start the car and quickly drove away from the scene, police said.
The woman says she is offering a $5,000 reward for information related to the theft.
