HACKENSACK, N.J. — Andrea Whitelocke says her Pomeranian, Diamond, was stolen on Saturday morning just after 10:30 a.m. from the front yard of her Hackensack home.

Surveillance footage shows a woman wearing a denim jacket and grey dress standing at the top of her driveway. She then appears to call for the dog, which is sitting on the driveway, before walking onto the property and scooping the animal up.

A neighbor says she witnessed the woman get into a car being driven by a second person, and ride away. Whitelocke described it as a gold Toyota Camry.

“This is something you see on television. It doesn’t happen here, someone walking on your property and taking your dog. It’s ridiculous,” she said.

Whitelocke said she reported the incident to Hackensack Police yesterday. She said she and her boyfriend recently adopted Diamond from a friend who moved away. Diamond was a new addition to their growing family, after having a baby three months ago.

“Please bring diamond back. My baby was getting attached to the dog,” she said.

Whitelocke and her family are asking anyone with information to call the Hackensack Police.
