Cat burglar facing charges in Smiths Falls: Police

Police launched an investigation on Oct. 15 into feline pets being stolen while roaming the neighbourhood.
Police say the investigation found a resident lured the cats onto her property and trapped them. Police say they believe the suspect then transported the felines to the Toronto-area without making any efforts to locate the owners.
