Sometimes thieves aren’t the smartest people in the world like when they choose to hold up a 99 Cent Store thinking they are going to come out with large amounts of money. Couple that with the fact that this particular thief used his parents dog as the getaway driver and look out was just asking to be caught. I guess a loud bark would have alerted the thief to people coming but I am not sure hwo the dog was supposed to drive the car away if people were in pursuit.
Dennis Kharitonov told his mother that he was going to go and take the family’s Pit Bull for a walk and two hours later when his mother still had not heard from him or see then dog she began to get worried. The younger Kharitonov not only used the dog as his look out and getaway driver but the car which he crashed into another vehicle was stolen. He abandoned the vehicle and left the dog behind after the crash. Freddy Boy the Pit Bull was returned home to his owners and the younger Kharitonov arrested and charged with Grand Larceny.
