The criminal entered Smith’s Food and Drug store and bypassed all the customers. He checked things out and had a big decision to make: which aisle would he take his loot from? Fortunately, security cameras caught the thief red-handed, or is that red-pawed?

Once the criminal got to the main section of the store filled with aisles of tasty treats and goodies galore, he made a mad dash for the dog treats and toys aisle. The criminal, in this case, is a determined dog!

He could have selected any number of dog goodies, but he opted for a rawhide bone. As quickly as he entered the store, this canine caper continued and made a mad dash for the exit.

Although the store manager tried to apprehend the criminal, he was in fear of being bit, so he let the perpetrator get away.
