A stolen pooch was reunited with its owner in Boston after the suspected Dognapper was discovered by a news team and given an interview.
Titus, a 13-month-old German shorthair pointer, was ripped from a parked car near Memorial Drive on Friday around 12:30 p.m., the news channel WHDH reported.

Police received surveillance footage showing a man leading the dog across Boston University Bridge.
When a 7NEWS crew was filming on location later, they saw a man walking with Titus.
The news team stopped the man, later identified as Kyle Gariepy, 29, for an interview in which he claimed the theft was a misunderstanding.
“He just barked in the car and I walked past the car thinking it was supposed to be a dog that I was running the dog,” Gariepy told the point of sale. “It wasn’t a kidnapping, it was just a simple mistake.”
However, according to WHDH, Gariepy never contacted the police or the owners whose number was on Titus’ identification tag.
However, Gariepy said he tried to call and the phone was broken.

He was arrested for stealing more than $ 1,200 and broke in and got into a vehicle to commit a crime.
Meanwhile, Titus was safely returned to his owner, who praised the news crew for their help.
“I’m just glad the person came back and I’m just glad that you were there,” its owner Greg Siesczkiewicz told the point of sale.
“If anyone ever sees this who questions the value of media, social media and broadcast media, this proves it.”
