Billings, Montana police are investigating a dog theft, and are now asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect. An area woman who suffers from Alzheimers walked her dog to the Heights Albertson’s store Thursday afternoon and left her Scottish Terrier in her walker.

A man seen in the following video takes the dog with him to his car before driving away. The woman’s daughter said her mother is devastated by the loss of her companion. She hopes people may recognize the man – or perhaps one of his children.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Crimestoppers at (406) 245-6660.

  1. Sorry to hear the lady lost her dog. This video dose not prove a thing. The 3 people walking away with a dog. That looked like the one with the lady. For all anyone knows those people were picking up their dog from a groomer,or a vet`s office.

    • @ Larry. I really hope you’re kidding and don’t really believe what you wrote. You really think the ladies dog just happened to disappear at the same time this guy picked his dog up from the Safeway pet groomer?

  3. With the technology & CCTV tech nowadays I would have thought they would be able to pick up the number plate off the car

  4. Valarie L Lovins…. The poor lady has dementia. Doesn’t matter that she left the dog outside a grocery store that doesn’t allow dogs, it’s the fact that someone stole the dog in daylight. The dog wasn’t his, why take it?

  5. Montanans are hardy, helpful people so I am hoping that they were just being good hearted and trying to help the dog. I’d like to give them the benefit of doubt. We can’t see how the dog was tethered, maybe it was stuck?? They don’t act like people who had just stolen something…. But if he is a mean spirited thief, then yes, he belongs with the other mean spirited souls.
