Puppy-napping in Los Angeles

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo
English bulldog

A two-month-old English bulldog was taken from a 15-year-old boy in Los Angeles County on May 5, 2010. The man who committed the act is now being charged with second degree robbery in connection with the alleged “puppy-napping.” According to California Penal Code Section 211, robbery is the “felonious taking of personal property in the possession of another, from his person or immediate presence, and against his will, accomplished by means of force or fear.” Robbery of the second degree is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for two, three, or five years according to Section 213(a) (2). Albiter was arrested when he took the boy’s puppy from him and after the young boy wrote down Albiter’s license plate number. The next week, police tracked the puppy to Albiter’s home. The puppy was not harmed and was subsequently returned to the family. Albiter was later released on a bail of $50,000.
