It appears that police in the Netherlands arrested a man for shoplifting who had a pet parakeet with him. The police not only arrested the man but also his feathered accomplice who they say witnessed the whole thing.
Police in Utrecht, a town outside of Amsterdam, snapped a picture of the bird cooling its claws behind bars, perched next to a half-eaten sandwich.
“We recently arrested a suspect for a shoplifting,” Politie Urtrecht Centrum said in the Instagram post on Thursday. “During the arrest we found a sneaky witness with feathers and beak on the suspect’s shoulder.”
Dutch news organization RTV Utrecht blurred out the bird’s eyes to keep its identity private.
It is unclear if the bird has turned on its owner but police say the bird is being very well taken care of.
