At 10:35 a.m., a 33-year-old man told police he had left his vehicle idling with a 3-year-old Labradoodle mix, Nola, inside in the 3500 block of West Lawrence Avenue, near St. Louis Avenue.

A thief then took the victim’s 2014 Chevrolet Storm and fled with Nola inside, police said.

The owners said they did not get a good description of the perpetrator because he was wearing a mask.

Nola was microchipped. There were no signs of the car or the dog Saturday night.
