When police in southern New Jersey found a culprit wandering through backyards, they took to Facebook to see if anyone could identify him.

Cape May police posted a photo they call the "pug-mug."

The pug was spotted walking through backyards along New Jersey Avenue.

Shortly after the post, the dog's owner was located and the pair were reunited.

The pug did spend a short time behind bars before he was "released on bail."
