OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City attorney's home was targeted by a thief in broad daylight. Little did the robber know, the whole thing was caught on tape.

If you stop by the Rogalin Household, you'll likely be welcomed by Queenie, Roland, and Bijou...the family poodles.

But one hot August afternoon, those three were inside when an unwelcome guest stopped by.

"11:00 in the morning, bright sunshine," said Michael Rogalin. "She's just sauntering through this walk."

The woman's three minute visit began at the front door, where she lugged two large Amazon boxes from the porch to her car.

"They were good size boxes, this was a rather strong woman," explained Rogalin.

That was just the beginning for the box bandit. With security cameras capturing her every move, she rounded the house and began snooping through the family's pickup.

Leaving the pickup empty handed, she's seen on video heading to her car... But not for long.

"As she starts backing off, it's just too tempting," said Rogalin. "She can't stand it, she sees the beware of dog (sign), there's no dog there."

So the woman in red tries her luck at the back gate, where she proceeds to lock herself out. She then adjusts her shorts, and leaves.

For Michael and his wife, Tiffany, this case is a matter of privacy.

"I would like to see her stop terrorizing people," said Rogalin.

But the real victims here are Queenie, Roland, and Bijou.

"We're like, 'Oh this is terrible, she stole our dog food,'" said Rogalin.

In the end, the thief's prize was hundreds of dollars in dog food. Pounds of Purina, fit for a feast, for three large poodles.

Anyone with information on this dog food fiend, should contact Oklahoma City Police.
