Pet owners beware!
The latest new heartless crime is called "pet flipping."
Criminals find lost dogs, and instead of returning them, they sell them for a quick buck online.
They'll also answer "found dog" ads pretending to be the owner, or they'll just steal pets right out of yards.
So look out for this crime, and be sure to contact your local police department if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
