The Columbus Police Department opened an investigation on Ruth Gregson and her 65 cats in October after several neighbors reported small objects being stolen from their homes.

Several victims reported being visited by Ms. Gregson's cats before noticing the disappearance of several shiny objects, like valuable cutlery and pieces of jewelry.

Despite their skepticism, investigators began a surveillance operation and were amazed by what they discovered.

According to Columbus Police Chief Kim Jacobs, dozens of cats were constantly coming and going, bringing home "anything that shined".

Upon searching Ms. Gregson's house, investigators found $650,000 worth of jewelry and precious metal among piles of worthless shiny baubles.

Chief Jacobs says the elderly woman confessed to training her cats to steal, saying the felines had to "earn their meals".

Oh B.S. I have had Cats the most of my life and I have a hard time believing you could train all 65 cats to do this, maybe 1 cat out of 65

and how many people have expensive jewelry laying around out in the open where a cat could get too instead of having it put away in a jewelry box or placed in a drawer

Dunno, I think the cats are getting a bum rap.

More believable is crows stealing the trinkets because they are shiny and the cats kill the birds and bring back the jewels as a trophy because she beat them for bringing dead animals as trophies.

Yeah...that's the ticket.

#5 My personal favorite was "Death row inmate eats an entire Bible as his last meal".

But PunchyPossum had to screw up everything.
