A dog stolen from a pet store at West Acres three weeks ago has been recovered.
Police released this surveillance video of the crime at Pets R Inn on August 2nd.
The video shows a brunette woman in a black top carrying a yellow bag take the Lhasa apso puppy to the front of the store.
Then after the clerk left, the woman walked out with the puppy valued at more than $500.
She quickly left the mall and was picked up by a male friend waiting in a vehicle.
Police say the surveillance video of the theft helped track down the suspects and the dog in Fergus Falls.
Fargo police received a tip from the Otter Tail County Sheriff's department.
Charges are pending against the two suspects.
