On Friday, May 8, a Sumter family was reunited with their dog after it was reported stolen from their property almost one year ago. The reunion was possible because of the efforts of volunteers and sworn officers. On March 13, Cpl. Kristen Gregory with Sumter County Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence on Griffin Lane in reference to a neglected dog in the yard.

Officers are still attempting to contact the person living at the residence where Diesel was found. Charges are forthcoming.
