Bella the Pomeranian puppy has been kidnapped.

And the culprits have been caught on videotape, the Daily Herald reports.

A couple posing as potential pet buyers came into a Naperville pet store Sunday evening and asked to play with 12-week-old Bella, and the man and woman were put into a socialization room.

When the employees were at the back of the store, the two snuck out with the pooch, but not before they were caught on tape.
