Robbinsdale Family Missing Dog After Home Burglary
The Robbinsdale Police Department is investigating a bold home invasion and theft of a dog. Homeowner Chelsie Curry is still trying to wrap her head around what happened at her home early Thursday morning.
“Your house is supposed to be a safe place,” she said. “I started to look around the house, and I was like, ‘there’s no computers, all of our stuff is gone.'”
Chelsie, her boyfriend Jovan Moore, and their three young children were all sleeping when the burglary happened.
“If we would have came down the stairs, we were not prepared for somebody to be in our house,” said Curry.
The family thinks the burglar or burglars may have come through a window on the side of the house. When they went to bed they cracked the window, but when they got up, it was wide open.
Pointing to a baby swing in the living room, Curry said “This was tipped over and I didn’t realize that the screen was gone. “
The burglars took an X-box video game system, two laptop computers, a cell phone, and watches. The thieves then they made their way downstairs to where the daughter and a dog were sleeping. Shermie is a 3-month-old boxer mix. He’s a foster dog from Ruff Start Rescue.
“He came up from a bad situation in Oklahoma, so we’ve been fostering him for a month and a half,” explained Curry.
The burglars also stole one of the family’s vehicles. The car was later recovered two miles from the home. Jovan Moore says a tracking device showed the car stopped off at several locations, a Super America store in Crystal. But, to Moore, material things don’t matter when he thinks about the dog.
“We just want our dog, that’s all. Our peace of mind will come back with prayer,” he said.
