Pooch snatched from Melville front yard

A dog was stolen from outside a Melville home in broad daylight over the weekend.

Dolce, a 2-year-old poodle mix, was taken at around 9:30 a.m. Sunday on Old Country Road.

The incident was caught on surveillance video, which shows a woman getting out of a car, taking the dog off the lawn and driving away.

Owner Lisa Fuschetto says her two other dogs were on the lawn too. The video appears to show the alleged dognapper trying to call one of the other dogs over as well.

Fuschetto has met with police who say they can't make out the license plate and don't recognize the car.
