VIDEO: Small dog helps foil robbery at Brooklyn pharmacy


NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Video released this week by the NYPD shows three would-be robbers running out of a Brooklyn pharmacy after they were confronted by the owner—and a small dog.

Police said three men, one armed with a gun, tried to rob the New Trend Pharmacy on Avenue H, near E. 34th Street, in East Flatbush earlier this month—but their plans were quickly thwarted by the owner and a barking dog.

The video released by police shows the tiny pooch yapping and wagging its tail at the suspects before they start fleeing.

One suspect crashes over a counter and another dashes through an aisle to escape, the video shows.

No injuries were reported in the attempted robbery, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
