Cody, a yellow labrador retriever, was home Tuesday after being kidnapped during a carjacking in Oakbrook Terrace a day earlier.

The dog was in the back seat of the white 2009 Ford Escape stolen from Anyway's Restaurant parking lot, according to WGN News.

A 25-year-old man, Bradley L. Haggard, of Lombard, was later arrested in connection with the carjacking. Villa Park and Addison police said the SUV was taken to a Wal-Mart and used as a getaway car after Haggard shoplifted items from the store.

Villa Park police chased Haggard east on North Avenue. The chase caused Haggard to crash into a tree at St. Charles Road and Craig Street. Haggard was caught and arrested after trying to flee on foot. Police report Haggard was under the influence and driving with a suspended license.

He is charged with felony charges of aggravated failure to obey an order to stop, possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting an officer and possession of cannabis. He is held on a $150,000 bail at DuPage County Jail.

Cody, the dog, was not hurt during the accident and was returned to his owner.
