In the time that an Oakland Park woman took her dog for a short walk, her vehicle and house keys were nowhere to be found.
Broward Sheriff’s Office Oakland Park detectives said around 7 p.m. on Friday, March 3, the victim parked her 2012 gray Honda Civic with Florida tag AQ87TZ in a parking space at her apartment complex. She said she locked her vehicle, went into her residence, and left shortly after to take her dog for a walk. When she returned a few minutes later, her vehicle was missing along with the keys to her house and car.
