The owners of a small dog named Jackson had secured him outside a store on 800 Carnarvon Street, police said in a news release.

Police searched the area and came upon video surveillance that showed a Caucasian woman holding a small dog in her arms — right around the same place that Jackson had been leashed up.

“We’re doing everything that we can to try to locate and return Jackson to his owners,” Sgt. Jeff Scott said in a statement.

“Part of our search includes identifying the female in the video surveillance so we can speak with her about this alleged theft.”

Anyone with info about Jackson’s whereabouts is asked to contact New Westminster police at (604) 525-5411.
