Doggie door danger! Bonnie and Clyde duo trick pit bull, invade home through doggie door

by Nancy Grace, Publisher

Two robbers use a doggie door to gain entrance into an Arizona home
The ordeal was caught on recently-released surveillance footage

Bonnie and Clyde burglars defy a snarling pit bull, a wall, and locked doors to break in and loot a Peoria, Arizona, home, and it wouldn’t have been possible without a doggie door installed in the back of the home.  Home security cams capture the entire ordeal on camera from multiple angles, even catching the sticky-fingered pair interacting with the pet dog.

The man and woman exit the car and knock on the front door before the man jumps the wall to get through the back dog door. The man lets the woman inside by unlocking the front door, and they proceed to remove items from the house.

Caught on video, the suspects back into the driveway still in their black Chevy Impala bearing temporary license plates. Both sitting in the front seat of the four-door car, they point the car toward the street for a quick get-away.


The two leave the car and knock on the front door.  With no answer, the man jumps the back wall to wriggle through dog door. He then lets his female accomplice in the home through the front door, in plain view of the street and then, they plunder the home. The homeowner reported stolen electronics and valuables worth thousands. They seemed to know specifically what they wanted, according to the homeowner.

“They knew exactly what to look for, where to go and what to take….  If you look at the tape, they were driving around before I even left.”

He believes they stalked the neighborhood, waiting for him to leave. The homeowner wishes to remain unidentified.

The dog was left by the thieves unattended in the driveway but thankfully, a neighbor found took the pet to safety.

BOLO for the suspects, Caucasians approximately 30 years old.  If you have information on the “Doggie Door Duo,” please call Peoria PD at 623-773-8973.
