Some people believe that having a cat in the house is like having a constant guardian who helps them keep an eye on things. Moggie is a cute red-haired cat that hasn’t taken his gaze away from a stranger trying to enter the kitchen, trying to warn his owners.
The robber, named as Mark Lawson, 42, sneaked into Moggie’s back yard in West Bridgford, Nottinghamshire, and was surprised by the cat as he approached the kitchen door at 6: 30 a.m. on October 13.
The alarm went off just as the thief noticed Moggie, alerting authorities to the unwelcome presence of Mark, who was eventually apprehended and sentenced to a total of six months in jail, suspended for two years, on three counts of handling stolen property.
The attempted burglar was shocked by seeing Moggie come through the window while attempting to figure out how to break into the house, as seen by the CCTV camera.
Mark crept on all fours and glanced up to see the red-haired cat peering through the window at him. After the alarm went off, Mark sprang to his feet and bolted.
The burglar was wearing a woolen hat and a scarf over his face to attempt to avoid being identified by the owner of the residence.
Mark had every intention of breaking into the Moggie family house as the residents slept upstairs, according to Nottinghamshire Police Detective Christopher Copley.
“We were able to find this offender very immediately because to the owner’s rapid and quiet efforts, which were motivated by his concern for the protection of his family,” Detective Christopher added.
A reaction team from West Bridgford came to the incident, detained Mark, and did a fantastic job gathering evidence.
“I’m glad he’s been punished, and I hope he’ll use this as a chance to improve his ways in the future,” the detective continued.
The authorities used the occasion to highlight the potential benefits of current phone-based CCTV programs, which allow people to be notified when suspects approach their houses.
