A woman lost her car, dog and wallet Wednesday when she left the keys in her vehicle while stopping for gas near 13th and Gold Streets.

The 62-year-old told officers that while she was inside a convenience store paying for $5 worth of gas about 11:30 a.m., someone stole her car, said an Omaha Police Department report. Her wallet, containing $120 and her birth certificate, was on the front seat along with her prescription pain medication.

The woman's 4-month-old brown-and-white cockapoo puppy was in the back seat of the bronze 2000 Oldsmobile Alero.

Surveillance video showed a man hiding behind a gas pump, jumping into the car and leaving west on Vinton Street, the woman told police. She also said it appears a newer light blue compact car followed the Oldsmobile out of the parking lot.

The woman's car has South Dakota license plates and its driver's door is white.
