Chicago woman reunited with dogs after car stolen in River North

A woman has been reunited with her two dogs after thieves climbed through her sunroof and took off in her car Thursday afternoon in the River North neighborhood.

The incident occurred in the 700 block of North Wells Street.

At about 3 p.m., the 33-year-old woman parked her black SUV on the street and entered a store with her car running, police said.

As she was leaving the store, she observed an unknown offender entering her vehicle and fleeing northbound on Wells. 


The woman's two dogs were in the back seat of the vehicle when it was stolen.

The dogs are a Maltese and a Schitzu named Karmen and Franklin.

The woman announced on Friday morning she had been reunited with her dogs due to news outlets and social media exposure.

There is no word on whether the woman has gotten her car back.
