ELMONT, NY (WCBS) – A pint-sized pooch was stolen from a Long Island pet store, and it was all caught on video. Police are searching for the suspect.

About four weeks ago, two men entered Zoo-Rama Pets in Elmont.

On the video, one man can be seen distracting the owner’s son, who was minding the story, while another started looking around, apparently trying to figure out what to steal,

Eventually, he settled on a one-pound, nine-week-old Pomeranian. He pried open the cage and proceeded to stuff the dog down his pants, reported Hall.

The owner believes the suspect already sold the puppy, which was worth over $1,000. He is offering a $500 reward for information leading to an arrest.
