Collier County cat burglar turns out to actually be a cat

Florida deputies have a cat burglar in custody. Literally, a cat.

The Naples Daily News reports Collier County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call Saturday about a suspected burglary in progress.

A homeowner heard knocking on a sliding door along with meowing. The caller thought the cat sounds were a ruse to try to get him or her to open the door.

When deputies arrived, they found the culprit was a small cat named Bones. They posted a photo on Facebook of the cat in the back of a patrol car, poking its head through a barred window.

The department said Bones was being taken to a county animal shelter for “fur-ther questioning.”
