SAN ANTONIO -- Police say a man broke into a Mexican restaurant and stole money from the jukebox, although it was a different noisemaker that led to his arrest.

San Antonio police said the suspect forced his way into a restaurant in the 3400 block of Roosevelt Avenue around 1 a.m. Monday.

Store surveillance video shows the man and his Chihuahua inside the business. They then leave the store after ransacking the jukebox, and a burglar alarm summons officers.

Police said the pair allegedly hid in some nearby bushes until the dog gave away their location by growling at approaching officers.

The stolen money was found around the corner from the restaurant and was returned to the owner.

The dog has been turned over to animal control officials.

The suspect's name and further details on charges weren't immediately released.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
