AVONDALE -- A West Valley woman whose truck and dog were stolen from a Costco on Monday has been reunited with her beloved canine.
AVONDALE — It happens to thousands of Arizonans each year. They walk out of a store to find their vehicle stolen. But a West Valley woman is brokenhearted; not about losing the truck, but about losing what was inside.
Debbie Parmely is without her best friend, a 12-year-old border collie named Miss Cydney. She lost her beloved pet when someone stole her truck.
"Cydney was the sweetest dog," Parmely told 3TV. "She couldn't hurt a flea."
She left the pup in her truck Monday as she made a quick dash into a Costco at 99th Avenue and McDowell Road.
"I walked over to the spot where I knew I was parked, and I had just washed my truck so I saw all the water from where it had dripped off," Parmely recalled. "I knew my truck was right there, and it was gone."
Gone with Cydney inside.
"Cydney just goes with me everywhere," Parmely explained.
Parmely made a quick call to 911 hoping she just lost track of where she parked in the Costco lot.
"The police came and it was stolen -- they had some surveillance cameras there and they saw three guys in a white Dodge pickup pull up, got inside my truck and started it and took off with it," she said.
Parmely's stolen truck is a 2005 Ford F-350 with extended cab and short bed. It is a dark green four-door with Arizona license plate #CF51050.
"If they would have just taken the truck, that's not a big deal," Parmely cried. "And if I knew my dog had died or something, I could deal with that. But not knowing what she's going through right now is heartbreaking."
If you know anything about Parmely's stolen truck or her dog Cydney, email her at, or contact the Avondale Police Department.
