Fahrenheit 451

Why does Beatty programming the Hound to track Montag even before Montag stole the book?

Do you believe Beatty had seen him steal the books before? Or is it that Beatty had detected a change in Montag's attitude or behaviour?

I beieve that Montag's aversion to the hound, and the fact that he speaks to Beatty about it, makes Beatty a bit suspicious as to why Montag is nervous. Thus, he sets the hound on Montag to find out if his suspicions have any credence.
