COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — Florida deputies say they have a cat burglar in custody. Literally, a cat.

The burglar, named Bones, was found after deputies were called to a suspicious incident that was possibly a burglary in progress.

When they arrived they found Bones, a small black and white cat. They say he was "quickly detained."

Bones was turned over Collier County Domestic Animal Services for safekeeping and fur-ther questioning.

There, it was discovered he was micro-chipped. Animal shelter employees are contacting his owner.
