A cat burglar!

A mischievous cat that steals its neighbours' property has been named and shamed on the internet.

Theo, a three-year-old Siamese cross, has stolen items like a phone charger, a hand puppet and a child's artwork from his neighbours' houses!

Owners Paul Edwards and Rachael Drouet became suspicious when they noticed items in the house they hadn't bought.

They have now posted pictures of the items on the internet and hope they can be reunited with their true owners.

Paul said his neighbours "quite like the cat so [they] had encouraged him into the house.

"He started stealing things from them and it kind of went downhill from there."

Rachael said Theo was becoming a bit of a neighbourhood celebrity for all the wrong reasons.

"We live in hope that one day he'll bring back an iPad or something of significant value!" she joked!
