Caught on camera: Man in Cookie Monster hoodie steals bodega cat
The owners of Ismael’s Gourmet Deli in Kingsbridge told News 12 that their beloved bodega kitten, Luna, was taken from them in an incident caught on camera.
Suzie Pena says the 2-month-old kitten was stolen sometime between 2-3 p.m. on Saturday from the store on West 238th Street.
