SAN ANTONIO – A dog stolen from a North Side Petsmart in July has been recovered by authorities.
A woman is charged with stealing the 2-year-old Shih Tzu during an adoption event near Highway 281 and Bitters Road.
An arrest affidavit said 54-year-old Irma Rangel stole the dog named Daisy from a rescue group called Pause for Paws.
The woman was caught on surveillance video. Months later, police detectives received a tip, which led them to Rangel’s apartment.
Officers obtained a warrant, searched Rangel’s home and found the dog. They scanned the dog’s microchip and it matched Daisy’s.
Rangel later admitted to detectives that she stole the dog.
Adoption fees were $200 for the dog. It’s unclear where Daisy is now.
