Would-Be Thief Foiled by Angry Cat in Maryland

The creeping of a would-be thief outside of a Maryland home was apparently too much for one cat. 

Angry over something outside the window, the cat woke its owner early Monday at about 1 a.m. The owner looked outside his Salisbury home and saw a man was stealing items from his car. Deputies arrived on scene and found 32-year-old Jamie Ruark inside another car, according to the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office. 

Ruark was captured after a brief foot chase and charged with four counts each of theft and tampering with a motor vehicle.
