DENVER — A thousand dollar reward is now being offered for a stolen car from a construction site near Broncos Stadium at Mile High. The reason: the owner’s black lab was inside that car when it was stolen.
“She’s just a super sweet dog. Like the sweetest,” Myles Richards said of his dog, Goose.
Richards is a general contractor, and had driven to the construction site on Federal Boulevard and 18th to give a work crew some instructions. He left his 2016 Audi allroad running, with the windows up and the air conditioning on, specifically for his dog. They key fob was in his pocket at the time, leading to even more concern.
“Whenever they turn off the car it won’t start again. So the windows would be stuck up and the dog could be in the back,” he said.
Another contractor on the job site tells Denver7 he saw a couple walking back and forth along the road, near the car, in the moments before it was stolen. Security footage from the building next door shows the couple in the area. The camera did not show the actual theft, but moments later, the car sped off.
“My concern is my dog. I don’t even care about the car. I’m just concerned about my dog. I want my dog back,” Richards said.
The concerned owner planned on spending the day searching the neighborhood, putting up flyers, and getting the word out on social media.
“Give me my dog back and I’ll give you a thousand bucks, no questions asked,” he said.
Anyone who may have seen Goose or the stolen Audi should call 970-948-8839.
