Dog, owner reunited after car thief
FULTON COUNTY, Ga. – It was a joyful reunion Friday after a traumatic crime. A dog owner is back with his best friend thanks to the kind actions of a Fulton County Animal Services employee.
These stole the Carlos Lester’s car, in the back was his beloved dog. Friday, he reunited with Tiny Tiger, who he refers to as TT, and got a chance to thank Tyla Smith for making it all possible.
Lester spent more than 8 hours Thursday night into Friday morning searching the Atlanta streets looking for the pit bull mix after thieves stole his car with her inside. It happened while he was inside a store on Camp Creek Parkway.
TT either got away or was let out by the crooks. That’s when Smith spotted the stray and got to work. She picked up the pup and the next day Smith brought TT to work with her hoping her owner would come. Less than two hours into her wait, he did. Lester’s first stop was here at this animal control shelter.
Lester said police located his car 48 hours after it was stolen. A few things were taken but he added everything can be replaced, but not TT.
