Newark Police Return Siberian Husky to Grateful Owner
On 01-31-2014 at 2035 Hours a Newark resident noticed transient Robert Maldonado/DOB: 09-04-56 walking what he described as a “Beautiful Husky” dog and suspected something was wrong since he had never seen Maldonado with such a nice dog in the past.
It turns out the dog had gotten out of his yard earlier in the day and the owners had called NPD dispatch asking if we could call them if we located their dog Chloe. They described their dog as a 6 year old female Husky.
Later in the day Officer Matt Warren learned that Robert Maldonado was trying to sell the dog. Matt is very passionate about dogs and could not believe someone would try and sell another family's pet. He located Maldonado on Blackwood Dr. and arrested him for four misdemeanor warrants and 485 PC - misappropriation of lost property (Chloe).
Maldonado was booked at Santa Rita Jail and the dog is once again home with its family.
We would like to thank the observant resident for calling us and helping reunite Chloe with her family.
