HESPERIA, CA. – After a full day and night away from his home, George was returned by the Hesperia Police Department.
George has been well-loved by the staff and the clients who go through the Hesperia Domestic Violence shelter. Clients form a bond with George who is there to provide love, support, and affection to them during a difficult time in their lives. When George was stolen by an unknown woman on Thursday, October 1, 2020, the staff and clients at the shelter were heartbroken. Immediately, they called the Hesperia Police Department and made a report. The deputy went and checked surveillance footage but the time estimate was incorrect the first time. The clients and staff were able to figure out a better time range and the deputy was able to find footage of the woman taking George right in front of the clients.
Fortunately, her license plate was clearly visible as she left the location with George, who had been freshly groomed. The deputy obtained the address associated with the license plate and was able to gain custody of George in order to return him to his home. It is unclear if the dog thief will face any charges. A 24/7 Headline News reporter reached out to the Hesperia Police Department for additional information, which will be updated when it is received.
