(Memphis) Surveillance video shows a man setting off a car alarm as he breaks in to steal a Shitzu puppy named Bishop. He then makes his getaway from the Walmart parking lot on Hickory Hill Road. 

Police say that man, 20-year-old Kiunte Johnson, is the dognapper.

Investigators used this surveillance video to get a quick track on Johnson.

It also shows three others inside the Walmart before the dognapping took place.
