Police are using their only evidence, a bra – size 34D – and a pair of leopard print sweatpants, as a means to track down a thief who stole four Bengal cats from a cat breeder yesterday, reports Vísir.

“Yes this is our evidence,” said Detective Superintendent Óli Sigurðsson with the Selfoss Police Department. “We’re looking for the owner of these pants and bra and are asking anyone with information to help us solve this case by calling our hotline, 444-2000.”

According to the cat breeder’s Facebook page, someone “not very strong” broke into the cat enclosure and stole a cage and four cats.

In the midst of the cat burglar’s escape however, their get-away car got stuck in a snowbank.

“In the snow there are tracks made by one type of shoe, a flat bottom approximately size 38-39,” wrote breeder Ólafur Sturla Njálsson. “The person in question got their car stuck [and] put a dark-blue bra sized 34D under one wheel and thin, grey, leopard print sweatpants with a zipper on the side under another wheel, size small.”

Ólafur expressed further anxiety over the fact that two cats taken are male and do not get along very well meaning they might act out and make their presence quite clearly known to any neighbours the cat thief might have.

“I only ask of the person who did this, whether it was one person or more, to return the cats in one piece. There will be no consequences,” said Ólafur who described the theft as an attack on his soul. “Best just to leave them in a moving box on the floor of my shed and send me an sms to fetch them on 698-4840.”
