A Very Furry Shoplifter Is Nabbed In South Carolina

A shoplifter at a Dollar General store in Clinton, South Carolina recently made off with a whole bunch of doggie treats and related items.
The police report involving the arrest of Cato
the shoplifting dog  

The store's owner, working with police, went to the store's security cameras to see if they could come up with any clues.

As is often the case in these situations, the video broke the case and and an arrest was made.

Clinton, South Carolina is safe again!!

It turns out the shoplifter was Cato, a husky dog. The clever thief broke away from his leash, and hun out by the door of the Dollar General store. If someone was slow enough opening the door to get inside, Cato would sneak through, grab his stash, and run out.

He even had a hiding place, burying his loot near the store for later use.

So far, no charges have been filed, but police filled out a report, just for fun.  The dog's owner reimbursed the store and promised to keep Cato on a tighter leash.

But you never know with these criminals. They can be so wily.

We can always hope, though, that Cato has seen the light, and will become a reformed criminal, and go on to lead a productive, honest life.
