Puppies Allegedly Dog-Napped By FedEx Driver Are Home Again
Erica Valdez Correa posted the video on Facebook and YouTube, insisting that the driver wasn't even supposed to make a delivery to her home, let alone a pickup that allegedly became a snatch and grab. The video was pretty damning.
You can see a truck with a FedEx logo drive up to the house and someone take first one dog and then the other. The driver was reportedly a contract delivery person working for FedEx Ground.
The good news is that the dogs, Sheila and Bruno, are now back home, according to KHOU-TV. "We're just so happy," said Armando Correa, Erica's husband. "We feel like our family is complete again, really, because we couldn't go another night without these two."
"To me, [the driver] is a monster," said Erica Correa to KHOU-TV. "My kids were here. If they would have seen him, how would my children have reacted?"
Their daughter held one puppy and lifted up a paw of the other, saying, "Hip, hip, hurray!"
Thursday night, someone found the two puppies wandering around and brought them to a veterinary clinic. Workers had seen news stories about the missing dogs and recognized them.
The local sheriff's department is looking into the matter. FedEx released the following statement:
FedEx Ground takes this matter very seriously and is working closely with authorities investigating this matter.
The driver is currently on suspension by FedEx until the investigation results are known.
