I have a 16 month old Golden Retriever who is as good as gold when we're around but as soon as we leave her for an hour or two she reaches up on the kitchen worktop and steals food or pens. We initially realised this after seeing footprints on the worktop then we saw chewed up biro pens in her bed that had been taken from the worktop. These occasions were rarely in the dark so not the same as your situation but similar. I'd be interested in seeing a test done when someone leaves the room. We are installing a CCTV camera to hopefully catch her!
