About two years ago, Jose Castrejon, 26, was arrested from snatching a dog from a 9 year old girl.
The little girl was standing outside a market with her new puppy, Mia, when Castrejon came up from behind her, grabbed the dog and ran, dragging the little girl who was holding on to the leash.
She let go of the leash and was not harmed.
Surveillance revealed the face of Castrejon and also that he was a member of the Bassett Grande Gang. Castrejon was arrested the next day and Mia was returned to the little girl.
He was released on bail and then rearrested for firearm violations. His bail was revoked.
His trial started in November of 2011 and he was sentenced on Wednesday February 1, 2012 to six years in state prison for robbery.
