    A video posted Tuesday on Facebook shows a man stealing a teacup Yorkie from the front porch of a home in Reseda before taking off on a bike.  

    Home surveillance video shows a man ride up on a bicycle, scoop up the dog from the porch within seconds and ride away southbound on Corbin Avenue. 

    "The man did not bother knocking or ringing our doorbell and just took him away," Arvin Galang said on Facebook. 

    The alleged thief was seen hours later at a convenience store with Coco the dog. The pooch is 10 years old and weighs about 8 pounds.

    The dognapper is described as a thin, white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He's around 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He was last seen wearing a black jacket, a gray shirt and pants.

      Anyone with information is urged to contact LAPD West Valley Patrol front desk at 818-374-7611 or call 911.
