Police in Arizona say a home was recently burglarized after a wily thief managed to wriggle in through the home's doggy door before letting his accomplice into the house.
And where there's a doggy door, of course, there's a dog. But police say the crooks came prepared for that, offering the pooch some sort of bribe in the form of food.
Surveillance footage ratted the male-female duo, however, and the Peoria Police Department has posted the incriminating video on Facebook in a bid to bring the suspects to justice.
In the video, the suspects pull up to the house and back into the driveway. They walk up to the front door and knock, but receive no answer.
The male suspect then jumps the wall and enters the backyard, where the male suspect encountered the canine.
He then enters the home through the doggie door and opens the front door for the female suspect.
All told, it takes about 10 minutes for the duo to steal multiple items from the home and drive off, leaving the dog.
"Thankfully a neighbor found the dog and was able to return the dog safely to the owner," cops said.
Peoria police told InsideEdition.com that the victim indicated that he “knew who did it” but that they've explored those leads with negative results at this time.
The suspects appear to be a white male and female, approximately 25-35 years old. The vehicle they arrived in appears to be a black, 4-door Chevrolet Impala with temporary tags.
Anyone who recognizes the individuals in this video or has information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Peoria Police Department’s Property Crimes Unit at 623-773-8973.
