District Heights dognapper caught on camera

A dognapper who was captured on a doorbell camera in District Heights is still out there. 

Investigators in Prince George's County are now asking the public to help identify the suspect who stole the five-year-old Dachshund breed dog last week from a home on Foster Street.

In the video released by police Wednesday, a woman can be seen walking onto a porch, and approaching the pup, whose name is Canelo. Then, the suspect appears to pet Canelo before taking off.

PGPD said the incident happened on March 6 around 5:35 a.m. A second suspect is also believed to be involved in the dognapping.
