Apparently, the man who lives at Irving Street had been caring for another person’s dog for about a year.

The man – not Figueroa – demanded his dog back.

The man watching the dog said he would return the dog once the veterinarian bills for the dog were paid.

Figueroa, who is not related to the man who owns the dog and not related to the man watching the dog, according to police, broke into the home and stole the “small dog.”

It is unknown what type of dog it is, and how old the dog is.

Lt. Mickens could not say this afternoon, June 30, where the dog is located at this time.
