    Police say a woman stole a 9-week-old Yorkshire terrier from an Orlando pet shop, left it in a trash bin behind the store and then called to say she was sorry.

    Orlando police arrested 25-year-old Carolina Mejia Urbina on a grand theft charge Thursday.

    She's accused of taking the puppy worth $1,300 from The Puppy Stop on Wednesday.

    Store owner Victoria Glatz tells the Orlando Sentinel a woman called the store Wednesday night, saying she had stolen the dog and left it in a cloth bag.

    Glatz says she texted Urbina on Thursday and convinced her to meet at a nearby cafe. Orlando police were waiting there and arrested Urbina.

    Urbina was taken to jail. It's unclear whether she's hired a lawyer.

    Glatz says the puppy is doing well.
