ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

Police detectives are hoping some newly released video will help them snatch a puppy thief.

The video shows a man entering the Animal House Pet Center and snatching a puppy from a bin inside the store. It happened Feb. 26 around 2 p.m. at the location on 34th Street North in St. Petersburg.

The video shows the man walk in with a backpack, sneak near the puppy bin, and put one of them in his backpack. He then looks around and leaves.

The puppy is a 10-week-old, 2-pound gray female Chihuahua with tan paws; its value is hundreds of dollars, police say.

Someone apparently saw the incident and alerted a store manager.

If you recognize this man and have any additional information, contact detectives at (727) 551-3142.
