Meanwhile, in Florida
Here, kitty kitty! Hey, that's not kitty!
A 61-year-old woman expected to feel the soft fur of her cats when she searched under her bed for them. But to her surprise, she felt a person instead. She had just touched the burglar who was hiding under her bed, Palm Springs police said. It happened Tuesday at a home in the 100 block of Cayman Drive. A stranger was knocking on residents' doors, drawing the suspicion of a neighbor who phoned the police. The neighbor watched the man walk toward the rear of a residence, according to the report. Inside that home, a woman was searching for her two cats. As the woman reached under her bed, she "felt she had touched human skin," an officer wrote in the report. "The suspect was hiding under her bed." That caused the man, later identified as Christian Vatovec, 25, of Lake Worth, to sprint from the home and jump a fence before running west toward Henthorne Drive, police said. Police responded to the neighborhood, and an officer visited the residence where the burglar had been. The woman said a gold ankle bracelet and digital camera were stolen. Officers found Vatovec near a canal and took him back to the burglarized home, where the woman identified him as the burglar. Vatovec faces burglary, grand theft and resisting arrest charges. He was booked into Palm Beach County Jail, where he was held in lieu of $53,000 bail.
