Woman accused of smuggling dog charged with theft
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — A woman accused of smuggling a small dog out of an animal shelter to avoid paying adoption fees has been charged.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner says 35-year-old Lindsay LaLonde of North Pole is facing one count of misdemeanor theft and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
A criminal complaint says shelter staff saw LaLonde come into the shelter and pass a beagle out the window to her daughter outside the building. The incident was captured by a security camera.
According to police, the woman said she passed the dog out the window because she could not afford the $90 adoption fee. The beagle, which shelter staff named Freddie, has been adopted legally by someone else.
