SAN ANTONIO -- A tourist visiting San Antonio is asking for your help after his dog was stolen. Police say James Maschmann, 67, was visiting the city from Iowa, when he stopped to eat at the Cracker Barrel off Southeast Military Drive near I-37 last Thursday.
He told officers he kept his car's passenger window open, so his 4-year-old Shih Poo dog, named Katie Jo, could get some air. Police say someone stole the dog, along with Maschmann's cell phone before driving off. Maschmann told police Katie Jo is valued at $500.
Surveillance video caught a white Ford pickup with a sun roof leaving the area at the time of the crime, but police do not have any other information on the vehicle. Maschmann says he will return to San Antonio this weekend to hand out fliers about Katie Jo's disappearance.
If you have any information on this crime, call the San Antonio Police Department's South Property Crimes Division at (210) 207-7334.
