A 50-year-old woman who is facing several charges after she allegedly broke into a Riverside Drive home last month and stole a dog is due to appear in court May 21.
The court appearance for Heather Zeffer is due to begin at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom B, an official from the Sudbury Courthouse confirmed.
The suspect has been charged with break, enter and theft, possession of property obtained by crime and mischief.
When social media tips led them to the alleged dog-napper, they filmed the dramatic confrontation on their cellphone.
In the days after the incident, Zeffer contacted Northern Life, and said she took the dog out of concern for its health.
However, the vet's office she brought Partner to said he appeared to be in overall good health.
A 19-year-old man is also facing charges in connection to the same incident.
He was charged with break, enter and theft, breach of recognizance, and breach of probation.
