UPDATE: Thanks in part to Daily Voice, Leonia police reunited a local owner with a dog stolen from her sitter by a Tinder date after the 2-year-old Maltese turned up in Garfield.


LEONIA, N.J. -- A Leonia dog was stolen after the sitter invited over a man she'd met on Tinder, said authorities who turned to the public for help.

The homeowner was out of state when the 18-year-old invited the man over Sunday night, Capt. Scott Tamagny said.

He arrived with a friend, the captain said.

"While the house sitter was distracted by one of the subjects, the other was alone in the house," he said.

After they left, she found Maggie, a 2-year-old Maltese, missing -- along with a laptop and a package from Amazon.

If you see Maggie, or know where to find her, please contact Leonia police at: (201) 944-0800 or email:
