GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) - A Greenwood family and its dog are back together, thanks to Facebook and some eagle-eyed Hoosiers.
Raiden, a Husky hybrid, got out of the Arroyo family home through a window. They posted the dog's disappearance on Indy Lost Pets, which put it on Facebook. A Facebook follower saw the alert and an ad on Craigslist offering a dog that looked like Raiden for sale for $1,000. Two family members posed as buyers and went to see the dog. After negotiating a price they said they had to go to an ATM to get money and instead got the law.
"So they went to the police station, got the police officer and then returned to the apartment. They stayed outside while the police officer went upstairs to talk to them. They knew the jig was up pretty much as soon as they saw a cop at their door," said Christian Arroyo, who owns Raiden with his wife.
Christian said he will get Raiden microchipped, something he says he's learned is very important for pet owners.
A man shot and killed while trying to purchase something off of Craigslist was laid to rest in a Brownsburg cemetery.
