Officials have cited a trucker who put a puppy into newspaper sales box to keep it safe while he bought some lunch in the Nebraska capital city of Lincoln.

Nebyou Brook, of Oakland, California, told animal control officials on Saturday that he didn't want to leave his 7- to 9-week-old terrier in his truck, and he couldn't take it into the fast-food restaurant.

So Brook put some coins in a nearby newspaper paper sales "honor box" and went inside for some food.

Another man saw what happened, so he put popped some coins into the box and retrieved the pup.

The long-haul trucker was cited for animal neglect but allowed to keep the dog.

A phone listing for Brook couldn't be found.
