NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Crime in New York City can be a dog-gone shame.

Nikeisha Anderson, 24, of Cambria Heights says her 2-year-old Yorkie Lily was stolen from the home she shares with her mother on 114th Drive when it was burglarized on Sept. 7.

The thief stole a laptop, jewelry and an iPod too. Also missing: Lily’s leash.

“The leash was hanging on the doorknob and the leash is also gone, she wouldn’t be running away and taking her leash with her,” Anderson’s mom, Pam, said.

The family got Lily when she was just 2-months-old.

“She’s a part of me, a part of my family,” Anderson said. “We looked under the bed, under the tables — she wasn’t here.”

Lily has brown and white fur, weighs about 6 pounds, and is 10-12 inches long.

Unfortunately, Lily does not have a locator chip.

“She’s like a kid. Even though she has four legs and fur she’s just a kid,” Anderson said.

She is asking for your help finding Lily. If you see her, please call 347-564-8678 or email Anderson at

  1. Did a cat burglar take the dog says:

    Maybe the dog was in on it .I heard of cat burglars but this is a whole new story.

    People! Microchip your cats and dogs! It’s less than $50 and increases the chances of finding your beloved pet exponentially. There was a story a few weeks ago about a cat from the midwest who was found in NYC five years later. These success stories are far more common than you think. Every shelter and veterinarian has the ability to scan for these chips, and the chips do not hurt your pet in any way.
