SHAKOPEE (AP) — A puppy-snatching in Shakopee was caught on video surveillance.

The pet store owner says a man carried the $2,500 male puppy like “a football” and fled with his getaway driver Monday.

Store owner Heather Latko says the store has video surveillance of the man with the 9-week-old longhair Chihuahua.

Latko says the dog also has a tracking microchip, and the store has a description of the vehicle that took the puppy away.

The video shows the man entering a puppy room and an employee bringing him the dog to hold. About a minute later, the man takes off with the puppy out of the Petland Shakopee’s front door.

Witnesses saw him get into a late-1990s, dark-blue Volkswagen Passat with an accomplice behind the wheel.
