HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A local animal adoption center, along with the Hattiesburg Police Department, is looking for a dog kidnapper.

Friday, a white female walked into the Animal Medical Center on Hardy Street inquiring about puppies for adoption.

The woman talked with the veterinarian technicians for a few minutes, asking to see some of the dogs. After scoping out all of the animals, she asked the tech to check on the price of a 2-pound schnauzer puppy.

Once the woman was alone in the adoption room, she walked over to the kennel, opened it up and stuffed the dog into her purse. She managed to leave the building with out getting caught.

If you have any information on this crime, you are urged to call the Hattiesburg Police Department.
