(KMOV) -- Police in Madison County are warning residents about a scam involving dogs.
Some burglars are using a small dog in an attempt to rob homes.
Police say they will come knocking on the door asking if a small dog they have belongs to you. They are really looking for anything of value, which they can see from the door.
So far they've been successful in both Edwardsville and near Bethalto.
Police are looking for a large white man and a petite white woman driving a small white car.
If you have any information call police.
