Armed Dognapping in California Caught on Tape

A dognapping case is being taken very seriously by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Suspects broke into a home, held a family at gunpoint, and stole five of their dogs -- four of them purebred puppies. The thieves likely learned of the expensive puppies via the ad the family took out in the paper, offering the Yorkshire terriers for sale.

As you can clearly see in this surveillance footage, the armed robbers committing this home invasion wasted no time ordering the residents to the floor at gunpoint and going after the expensive puppies.

Kelly Lee says when she answered the door the thieves stormed in, grabbed their garbage bags, and chased the scared puppies all over the house until each on was caught.

There were four puppies, valued at 25-hundred dollars a piece.

But the family says the most precious thing stolen is Tanja, the family pet of three years.
