An East Hamilton family is devastated after a pizza delivery driver allegedly stole their beloved cat Dwight.
The entire incident was captured on surveillance footage. Now, the family is offering a reward for anyone who can help bring their cat home.
Rebecca and Carlo Belforte had a Dominos pizza delivered to their home just before 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday when they realized something was missing.
Dwight, the family’s 12-year-old grey cat, was nowhere to be found.
The couple says when they checked the home surveillance camera footage – after the pizza was dropped off – the couple says the delivery driver was spotted carrying the their cat under his arm and placing him in his car. The video stops before the driver takes off.
The Belforte’s say when they reached out to Dominos, they were connected directly with the driver from the video who allegedly took their cat, but the driver said he didn’t have him anymore.
Carlo said the driver told him he had abandoned Dwight almost 10 kilometres from the couple’s home in the area of Gordon Drummond Avenue and Kennard Street.
The couple quickly took to social media in hopes that someone could help find Dwight and they have gained some traction.
The couple is offering a reward of 500 dollars for anyone who is able to find Dwight.
They’re asking anyone with information to reach out to them directly at 905-730-4159.
