Court of Perpignan: facing the burglar, it is the cat who gives the alert

Idle, he spends his nights outside. he randomly enters a dwelling and steals what he finds in the presence of the sleeping occupants; silent as a shadow. But, this time, he came across more feline than him…

“Do you need money?” Sir, asks the judge.
“Family problems?”

Mehdi is just 18 years old. He has already been sentenced 3 times and under probation. but he persists in stealing without really knowing why. On October 14, he entered a house in Rivesaltes at night while its occupants were sleeping. He entered the owners’ son’s room and stole a credit card. His feline step has only been heard by a connoisseur on the subject: the cat. It was he who sounded the alarm.

Mehdi and his accomplice, a 15-year-old boy, fled, but the minor was quickly found by the gendarmerie. From then on Mehdi was identified. His father was able to recover the stolen bank card and handed it over to the gendarmes who came to arrest the young thief. Which is returned to court as soon as possible.

“It was the miner who trained me, he wanted to do what we did in Espirhas”.

The president raises an eyebrow: “And what is it ?
“We entered houses and stole everything we could.”

This time, he was randomly looking for a motocross bike.

“And why? “
“I wanted one!”

The prosecutor, who has seen others, remains taken aback: “I am marked by this casualness and this lack of empathy for the victims who have experienced a terrible trauma. His immaturity has a good back. He is of age. Since he is already under suspended sentence, I must ask for a firm sentence: 10 months .”

“In the absence of a professional project”, the court follows him and orders 10 months with continued detention, without adjustment.
