Assume that Fido will keep strangers from sneaking into the house while you're away? Think again.
A Houston burglar has slipped through the doggie doors of at least two Montrose-area homes since December, as KTRK Ch. 13 first reported.
Ruth Woody, who lives near Montrose Boulevard and West Gray Street, was prepared with a security camera when the thief struck on Wednesday.
Footage shows a man pacing around the family's backyard and talking on a cell phone (while an accomplice, possibly driving a white Ford, is on the lookout). The thief then crawls through the dog door into the house. He emerges just over four minutes later with a loot-stuffed pillowcase, without engaging the alarm system.
The doggie door thief got away with an iPad, a camera and jewelry in his latest burgarly.
Maybe it's time to board up those doors. Or send your canine off to guard dog training school.
