THORNTON, Colo. -- Thirteen high-priced puppies were swiped from two pet stores in north metro Denver. The store owners are hoping a new clue will help lead police to the suspects and the little dogs.

The English bulldog puppies are with $2,800 each. Four of them were taken from the Pet Ranch in Thornton after the store closed Tuesday. Surveillance video shows them in and out of the store in under a minute.

"From the time the alarm actually started going off and the police arrived on scene was less than four minutes," Renee Reese says.

Then, about 90 minutes later, police say the same suspects struck again. The target was Puppy's and Stuff in Northglenn.

Nine puppies worth a total of $5,000-6,000 were taken.
