Taking packages that don’t belong to you sometimes affects more than just the people to whom they were delivered. Such was the case for an Oak Park canine, whose medicine and Purina dog chow didn’t make it indoors after being delivered.
The two boxes were taken from the front porch of the dog’s residence in the 1100 block of South Harvey Avenue during the short window of 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., June 21. The loss of the packages is estimated at $300, but police did not provide information regarding the emotional toll on the dog.
