Doing Bird

by | 2nd, November 2004

‘THREE thieves have been arrested after returning to the scene of their crime – to silence a parrot who they believed could identify them.

The trio had made off with DVD players, computers, radios, televisions and other electronic items from a house in Memphis, Tennessee when one of the three said he had heard a parrot in the house using the nickname ”JJ” of one of his accomplices.

They went back for it and were loading it into their car when police arrived.

The men were arrested after a short car chase and have been charged with aggravated burglary and evading arrest.

”They were afraid the bird would stool on them,” said police Major Billy Garrett said. ”They actually believed he could identify them.”’
