Spring Hill, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Alfred Iannuzzi, a 63-year-old Florida man, was arrested Tuesday after allegedly stealing a cat trap from his neighbor.
According to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office, Iannuzzi’s neighbor, Ronald Beer, put a cat trap in his front yard to catch stray cats - cats Beer says keep coming near his property because Iannuzzi keeps feeding them.
Investigators say Beer noticed his cat trap was missing and reviewed footage from one of his exterior security cameras that showed Iannuzzi taking the trap.
Iannuzzi initially denied the theft but later told deputies he stole the cat trap because he was upset because his neighbor kept trapping the cats and then calling animal control to come pick them up. Iannuzzi said he took the cage and gave it to a friend who disposed of it.
Iannuzzi was booked into the Hernando County Jail on misdemeanor citation for petty theft and ordered to appear in court on May 12.
