Cat burglar prowls Oregon streets

A literal cat burglar is on the loose in Oregon.

Meet Tigger, the ‘Kleptokitty’ who happens to belong to a police officer.

According to the Portland Tribune, Tigger has become quite prolific over the years, pilfering everything from socks to Wendy’s French fry boxes, candy wrappers and rubber gloves.

Tigger belongs to West Linn Police Sergeant Dave Kempas.

“We live next door to a school,” Kempas said. “There’s a hole the cat goes through, and on the other side of the fence is a staging area, if you will, of all the stuff he piles up and brings into the house.”

Tigger now has his own Facebook page to log his exploits. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
