Cat Burglar?

Thief steals 216 pounds of cat food from trailer

By Liz Fabian

LIZELLA - It could be a local cat burglar, but authorities are looking for the thief who nabbed 216 pounds of cat food.

Between 12:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, someone cut off the lock on Vernon Harris' tractor trailer and hauled off 72 3-pound bags of Whiskers cat food, according to an incident report from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office.

"They probably broke in to see what was in there and figured they'd steal whatever was in there," Harris said.

The tractor trailer, headed for a distribution center in Miami, was parked behind Frenchie's store at 6011 Bethel Church Road, the report stated.
