In April 2018 "Bambi", a one year old Miniature Pinscher/Poodle mix breed dog was reported stolen from a residence in Hummelstown Borough. The owner of "Bambi" knew the person that took her dog. Several attempts to locate the suspect were not successful. Three days later a small animal carcass was discovered on fire at the suspects residence in the early morning hours.
The remains were collected and tested by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Further DNA testing was conducted at another facility to determine if the animal was the stolen dog.
On February 14, 2019, after a lengthy investigation HBPD arrested Kathryn Grecia of Hershey with Aggravated Cruelty to Animals, Tampering with Evidence and Theft.
