_ 3119 Old Ringgold Rd.: Police were called to the address on Sunday evening on a reported animal theft. According to a police report, officers spoke with occupants, a man and a woman, who said that while she was out doing laundry and the man was at work, someone entered their apartment and stole their pet Boxer, Bo. The distraught owners of Bo told police that they locked the front door but did not engage the dead bolt. The male victim told officers that there is a slight crack in the door frame on the front door that allows the door to be “jimmied” by using a credit card. The victims told police that the rear sliding glass door doesn’t lock but it is secured with a rod at the base to prevent anyone from entering. The report states that officers saw the sliding glass door had apparently been opened from the inside, allowing the “dognappers” to exit the apartment. The dog is brindle colored and has a chip embedded in it for identification. There is no suspect information at the time of the report.

Police continued to demand that Lee stop but he continued his flight through the office, thereby further endangering the child. Lee then entered the manager’s office and turned around when he realized it wasn’t an exit.

When Lee handed off the child to his girlfriend, police were able to take him into custody.
