TUCSON, Ariz. -- If you are going to commit a crime, it's probably not a good idea to speed down a highway afterwards.

That's apparently what two men did on Tucson's southside last month and it will likely lead to their quick capture.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says two English Bulldogs were stolen from a home in the 4100 block of East Coolbrooke Drive early the morning of March 15, 2010.  That's near Alvernon and Valencia.

The culprits apparently headed west on Valencia and onto South Nogales Highway where a photo radar camera caught them going over 80 miles an hour in a 45 miles per hour zone.  The camera caught their faces clearly and in one of the pictures you can even see one of the dogs in the back seat.

Investigators are opening you can help them identify the thieves and get the dogs back to their owners.  If you have any information, you're asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
