A puppy has been stolen from a property in Harrow Weald after a man posed as a buyer and pretended to pay using a fake app on his phone.
The incident happened on Tuesday 17 August as the white Japanese Spitz puppy was taken from his home in Harrow Weald in broad daylight.
The owner of the puppy, Bernadett Varga, told Harrow Online: “I own the Mum and the Dad of this puppy, I had a litter so I decided to sell them.
“One guy came to my house pretending to be a buyer and he used a fake app to prove that he paid for the puppy, then he just left with him.
