DOVER, N.J. (April 20, 2014) A New Jersey woman has her Yorkshire terrier and her flat-screen TV back after a man she met online stole them during a first date.
The woman called police to report that she found the dog, Violet, tied by its leash to the TV in the front yard of her home early Saturday in Dover, N.J.
She said Violet appeared to be OK.
The woman met the man on a dating site and went out Thursday night.
After they returned to the woman’s home, the man swiped the dog and the TV after she stepped into another room.
The woman said she knew the man only as "Joel."
Police, however, say they know the man's identity and charges could be filed.
