Thief gets car, dog in NW Charlotte

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are looking for a man who allegedly stole a woman’s car -- and her puppy -- from a convenience store in northwest Charlotte on Sunday night.

The theft was reported shortly before midnight from a store in the 5000 block of Sunset Road, near Interstate 77.

Police say Lashaundra Jones, 25, of Charlotte, had stopped at the store and but had left her car unattended with the keys inside. A man jumped inside the car, a 2010 Hyundai Accent, and drove off.

Jones told police her Chihuahua puppy and an iPhone were inside the vehicle.

The car is a blue four-door model, with N.C. license tags ADM-7940.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.
