Police Monday released the name and photo of a man suspected of stealing a French bulldog named Archie — still missing — during a home burglary in Long Beach.

Detectives reviewed security video that included images of a gray Nissan Versa believed used in the June 17 crime to identify 32-year-old Francisco Feliciano as the alleged burglar/dognapper.

The suspect, described as Hispanic, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 135 pounds, “does not have a permanent residence, but has ties to the San Fernando Valley area and various cities in Orange County,” according to a Long Beach Police Department statement.

The burglary occurred about 10:45 a.m. in the 2500 block of Quincy Avenue.

“When officers arrived, they learned the residents were in their home when they heard a noise coming from another room,” according to the LBPD. “When one of the residents went to investigate, he saw an unknown male subject standing in the living room. When the suspect and resident saw one another, they ran off in different directions. The suspect then fled the home and left in a vehicle. It was at that time the residents realized their French bulldog Archie was missing, along with some miscellaneous tools.”

Detectives determined that the suspect had entered the home through an open door. Security video shows a dark gray Nissan Versa pull up to the home and a male suspect getting out of the front passenger seat. A second suspect “can be seen driving the vehicle, along with a third suspect who was a passenger in the backseat,” police said.

Anyone with information about the dog or any of the suspects was urged to call (562) 570-7392 to speak with Detective Daniel Martinez. Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers by calling (800) 222-TIPS.
