A Lehigh Acres, Florida family is heartbroken after they say someone stole their puppy. The little pug named Mocha was the Ramirez children's Christmas present from Santa.

Around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning, their mother put 2-month-old Mocha in his cage on the porch right by the front door so he could get some fresh air. 

During the 20 minutes he was outside, a crook sneaked into the yard unlocked the puppy's cage and stole him. 

The kids came to get mocha and discovered his empty crate.

"I was crying about it last night because I'm really worried about him. I don't know whose hands he's in," said 15-year-old Gloria Ramirez.
