Dutch police arrest bird for alleged involvement in robbery

A picture of a small parrot “locked up” in a Dutch police cell is giving new meaning to jailbird — and on Monday attracted a flurry of chirpy comments on social media.

Dutch police arrest bird for alleged involvement in robbery


When police arrested the bird’s owner on suspicion of shoplifting in the central Dutch city of Utrecht on Thursday, they found the little bird nestled on the suspect’s shoulder.

“During the arrest we found a secret witness with feathers and a beak on the suspect’s shoulder,” police said.

“We then realised to our shock that we did not have a bird cell or cage,” the police said tongue-in-cheek, adding that the little creature was “well cared for.”
