Drone Helps Police Nab Man Who Stole French Bulldog Puppy at Gunpoint

Recommended Posts

Police in Culver City, California recently used a drone to help apprehend a man who stole a puppy at gunpoint.


The man was responding to an ad he’d seen on Craigslist about a grey, 10-month old French Bulldog. When the owner showed the man the puppy he took out a semi-automatic handgun, grabbed it, and ran.

Detectives quickly narrowed their list of suspects down to one person, and Culver City detectives began surveilling his home.

Four days later, the detectives saw the man leave his home holding a puppy that matched the description of the stolen one and getting into a car. When they tried to pull the man over shortly after he started driving he drove off, and they pursued him.
