ALTADENA (CBS) — During a heist at an Altadena smoke shop, two robbery suspects didn’t count on one tiny crime fighter to throw a wrench in their plans.

Two men carrying rifles stormed into Ace Smoke Shop when the victim’s Chihuahua jumped on one of the suspects and kept barking incessantly.

But the pooch didn’t stop there — After the thieves got the money and took off the dog took after them.

Neither the dog nor the robbery victim was injured.

Detectives are searching for suspects.

The entire ordeal was captured on the store’s surveillance camera and has become a viral sensation.

If you have any information regarding the identities of the suspects, you are urged to call police.

    Ha, HA, HA! What a cute, little guy. I’m wondering though why everyone is pronouncing his name as PACO, when his name is really, POCO, which means LITTLE in Spanish?

    Hey, Everyday Guy, he could put the Chihuahua, Poco in the purse he carries, while being car-ried in his Prius, being utterly progressive carried by our Planet.
