An Amazon delivery driver in Georgia delivered a customer’s package — then tried to steal her puppy, according to a local news report.
“The Amazon guy stole our puppy.”
Terrika Currence had just received the package when her daughter noticed that the man driving the Amazon delivery truck had taken her dog, the local television station reported “WSB-TV“.
“As I open the door to bring the package and dog food into the house, my daughter screams and says, ‘The Amazon guy stole our puppy,'” Currence said.
After running to the van, she opened the back door and yelled at the driver until he released the puppy, according to a video she shared with the news station.
“I had to grab the puppy and get him out of the car,” Currence said, adding that the driver gave no explanation as to why the dog was in the car.
