INVERCARGILL, New Zealand—In one New Zealand town, a clever three-legged dog became one of the area’s most wanted criminals this week.

Oscar was caught red-handed stealing pet food from a store.

When his owners went on vacation, Oscar decided to go a little wild.

The cunning pooch was caught on security footage grabbing a bag of pet food before dashing out the door.

He even went as far and choosing the packages that were in the coolers before making his run from the law.

The shop’s owner says she was not surprised to find out that Oscar was the repeat offender.

She says she couldn’t be mad at him so no charges will be filed.

However, Oscar’s determination did land him in the pound until his owner returns from vacation.
