Police: Car with dog still inside stolen from outside Richfield liquor store

The Richfield Police Department is asking people to be on the lookout for a vehicle stolen Friday afternoon with a beloved dog still inside.

Police said the car, a 2021 black Chevrolet Malibu, was in the parking lot of Richfield Liquor (6600 Cedar Ave. S.) around 2:30 p.m. The vehicle was left running and someone hopped in and drove off, heading northbound on Highway 77.

Still inside is Vic — a 50-pound black lab described as "very friendly."
