Dog missing in Goldsboro break-in

Posted April 4, 2013

— A Goldsboro woman is looking for her dog after it was stolen during a break-in at her home last month.

Mariko Lydecker told Goldsboro police that someone broke into her home on Oak Street overnight on March 23 and snatched her 8-month-old Yorkshire terrier and several pairs of shoes. The dog nabber also damaged her flat-screen television.

Police on Thursday said Miriam L. Glenn, 24, of 202 Bartlett Ave., turned herself in and was charged with second-degree burglary, larceny of a dog, larceny after breaking and entering and injury to personal property.

Glenn was released on a $20,000 unsecured bond.

Police said Thursday they have been unable to find the dog.

    OMG! That is TERRILBE about the dog. I know some people look at their pets as pets. But some people look at their pets as members of their family. This is so upsetting.

    My dogs ARE my family and my life! Absolutely, 100000%. If something happened like this, I wouldn't have to worry about trying to find them. I think I'd die right there on the spot!

    I hope this little Yorkie is found safe. He would make an excellent meal, which is just sickening! So sad!!

    Start scouring Craigslist ads for terriers. Hope that if someone bought him, they'll bring him back. I know I would.

    What a rotten person - to intentionally hurt someone by taking something they love

    What do you think the odds are that if someone bought a dog from this woman they will turn it over? ha.

    hope the dog is found safely. Sounds like a personal break-in to me-stealing the dog and only breaking the TV
