Police looking for puppy thief caught on camera

Mt. Healthy police are looking for a puppy thief wanted for stealing a chorkie on Wednesday, June 1, 2016. (Mt. Healthy PD)

MT. HEALTHY, Ohio (WKRC) - A young man who struck a Mount Healthy business on June 1 wasn't after money. Instead, he stole a "chorky" puppy from the Animal House Pet Store.

Store employees say a couple with the child came in first, and a few minutes later a teen in the red shirt entered. He can be seen hovering over the pen and unzipping a backpack.

When no one was looking, the teen grabbed the puppy, stuffed it in the backpack and left the store.

The dog is valued at 600 dollars.

If you can help Mt. Healthy Police identify this individual, please call 728-3183 or CrimeStoppers at 352-3040.
