Onyx the Black Lab Found Inside Stolen Car and Reunited with Owner
Onyx reunited with relieved owner Nancy
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHP) — Police in Franklin County say a dog and car stolen from a gas station parking lot have been recovered and the dog is back with his owner.
Chambersburg police said the car, which had a 10-year-old black lab named Onyx inside, was stolen from the Sheetz parking lot along Norland Avenue Wednesday morning.
Police say the car, belonging to 79-year-old Nancy Sheaffer, was left running.
The car was found late Thursday in the Greencastle-area of Franklin County.
Onyx was inside and later reunited with Sheaffer. "He's just like a baby to me," Sheaffer said Thursday.
Police say the person believed to have stolen the vehicle may have headed toward the York County area because of credit card transactions made on Sheaffer's cards.
"Every hour of the night I was out here walking outside to see if maybe he's trying to get home, or hurt or coming down the street...I mean every hour," Sheaffer said Thursday.
Police said their investigation into the vehicle theft was ongoing.
