Authorities in Mesquite, Texas, are searching for two brazen thieves who stole a puppy out of a fenced yard in broad daylight. A video (surveillance cameras) posted to Facebook shows the puppy-napping…a man in a dark shirt and a ball cap can be seen calling the puppy over to the fence line and then grabbing the pup and walking back to a dark colored SUV. The man who grabbed the puppy leaves with another man who appeared to possibly be distracting the adult dogs who were in the same fenced enclosure.

The puppy’s owners posted information about the stolen pup and the offering of a reward:
