It's a Christmas miracle for a Yonkers dog owner

A Yonkers dog owner says she now believes in Christmas miracles.

Last week, thieves broke into Soraya Alcantara's apartment and stole not only personal items but her beloved Yorkie, Ella.

Alcantara says she and her boyfriend searched everywhere but came up empty. In one last desperate attempted to find Ella, Alcantara asked her boyfriend to look inside the Pet World store on South Broadway.

Inside the store, the boyfriend says he saw a man carrying Ella while trying to sell her to the store owner.

The boyfriend confronted the suspect and the worker called police. The suspect is now in police custody in connection to the robbery and Alcantara has been reunited with Ella.
