Five puppies were stolen from the Petland in Dunwoody on Friday morning.

Police are searching for two suspects who broke into the Petland in Dunwoody and stole five puppies Friday morning.

The incident happened about 3 a.m., and the thieves used a rock to break the front glass door of the pet store, Dunwoody police Sgt. Robert Parsons told AJC.com. The five puppies are worth about $15,000, he said.

The store’s manager spoke to police when they arrived, showing them surveillance video of the two burglars, according to a police incident report. The suspects were inside the store for about five minutes.

After they took the puppies, which were individually worth between $2,750 and $6,950, the thieves stole $160 out of the cash register, the report said. They also went to a file cabinet to steal the puppies’ paperwork, the manager told police.

The suspects were wearing dark-colored clothing and gloves and were carrying green, military-style duffel bags, the report said. The surveillance video was not released and no other descriptive information on the suspects was provided.

The store, which is located at 4733 Ashford Dunwoody Road, has been targeted by puppy-snatchers in the past.

In October, a French bulldog worth $7,000 was stolen from the store. A man placed the puppy in a bag before walking out.
