Florida Family, Suspecting A Burglar, Alerts Sheriff's Department


Good morning. I'm Noel King. When the residents of a house in Collier County, Fla., heard noises in the night, they called the sheriff's office, suspecting a burglar. Authorities turned up, and indeed, they found a cat burglar - not the human kind, though; the prowler was an actual cat. The sheriff's office posted a photo of the little guy looking bewildered behind the barred windows of a police car. Good news, though - Bones had a microchip and will be returned to his owners.
