Caught on Camera: Couple Steals Puppy in Front of Children

A couple was caught on camera last week stealing a puppy worth $1,500 in front of two children at a South Florida pet store, the shop's manager said.

Surveillance video shows an apparent family of four walk into Nessie's Puppies of Kendall, located at 8690 Southwest 137 Avenue, and look at the dogs on display. Moments later, the video shows a man jumping a small fence and grabbing a teacup Yorkie from the cage.

The unidentified man then handed the puppy to a woman who placed the Yorkie under her skirt.

The couple immediately walked out of the store with the children.

"They didn't even look at me, just straight walked out. So I immediately I was like something's wrong. This is not normal," Gaby Ortega, the store worker said.

Police are reviewing surveillance video to find those responsible. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
