Florida Woman Arrested Accused Of Stealing French Bulldog From Tourist At Hotel

Officers arrested a Florida woman after she was accused of stealing a 9-month-old French bulldog named Georgie from a Virginia woman who was at the Cambria Hotel in Fort Lauderdale.

A good samaritan spotted a Florida woman walking a dog along A1A and believed it was the same woman seen on surveillance video snatching the pup from a nearby hotel.

It all started around 3 a.m. when Danaja Brinkley said her ninth-month-old dog, Georgie, was off his leash in the hotel lobby. She and family members who were on vacation from Richmond, Va., were at the hotel lobby’s bar.

Surveillance video captured a woman inside the hotel wearing a black hoodie carrying the dog out of the hotel.

Fort Lauderdale officers arrested Agustina Natali Berrondo and took her to Broward County Jail.

Cell phone video shows the moments Brinkley and a good Samaritan tracked down Berrondo after seeing her walking along A1A and they called police.

Berrondo was supposed to appear in front of a judge but refused. The judge found probable cause to charge Berrondo with grand theft and set her bond at $1,000.
