Do Cat Burglars’ Steal Dog Food?

As a Police Officer, you never know what your daily calls will bring. I think for most, that is an appealing part of the job. Every day is different, and sometimes you see some really strange things.

Recently, an officer was dispatched to an apartment complex to investigate a residential burglary. No electronics or jewelry was missing, as is commonly the case. The officer discovered the only items stolen were a dog collar and military dog tags.

Weird, right? But hang on, it gets better. Four days later, officers responded to a residential burglary in an apartment complex close to where the first incident took place. This time, a dog collar and 15 pounds of dog food were snatched. Neither apartment had any signs of forced entry.

If anyone has any information regarding these incidents please call the TIPS HOTLINE at 816-474-TIPS.

This goes to show you, as a police officer you never know what you’re going to encounter.
