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.
