World's Dumbest Cat Thief Caught In Denver
I mean ... really?! This aspiring cat thief in Denver, Colorado left a lot to be desired.
On July 18, an unidentified adult male pulled up to a residential house in Denver, ran into the backyard, and stole a family's 5-month-old kitten - while the daughter was in the yard.
Naturally, the family called the Denver police to report the crime. Thanks to the criminal's genius plan of leaving the car out front and running while he ran around back to steal the cat, the family was able to provide both an accurate vehicle description AND a license plate number.
Police officer Everett Moore was assigned to the case and was able to track down an address associated with the license plate number. Upon arriving at the address, he found kitty litter scattered all over the driveway. According to Denver 9 News:
The family decided not to press charges and the case was closed but I have a few nagging questions of my own:
-What the bloody hell?!
-Did the cat thief know this family?
-Why this cat?
-Why all the kitty litter?!
-Is this a distraction from a more insidious crime?
-Perhaps the cat thief is part of a Breaking Bad type drug operation in the southwest?
-Why no restraining order?
-Is the family in on the drug operation too?
-Can someone please confirm my drug theory?
I need answers and I will be losing sleep until I get them. Keep your eyes and ears peeled people! Send any hot tips this-a-way.
