St. Paul police helped reunite a family Saturday after a van containing two golden retrievers was stolen Friday night downtown.

According to the owner, the 2013 black Dodge Caravan was stolen around 8:30 p.m. downtown while the dogs were inside. After taking to social media to ask for help, someone spotted the van with the two dogs, Harkin and Dev - safe inside.

The group said the dogs were "just scared and thirsty" when they were returned home.
