Somebody took off with a woman’s dog after she left it tied to a tree inside Prospect Park for two hours on July 29.
The dog’s owner told police she leashed her 2-year-old Yorkie, Gucci, to a tree inside the green space near Prospect Park West and Fifth Street at 1 pm, and left it there as she explored the Prospect Park Zoo until 3 pm, when she returned to discover somebody had taken off with the hapless pooch.
Investigators valued the dog at $950 — just short of the $1,000 value required to warrant a felony charge — and the 78th Precinct ruled the crime a misdemeanor petite larceny, according to police.
No arrests were made in the case, and it was closed, according to police.
