SARAH MCCAMMON, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Sarah McCammon. There's a cat burglar on the loose in Beaverton, Ore. Her name is Esme, and she is a literal cat who steals items from her neighbors. Esme's owner, Kate, knew she had to make it right, so she displayed all her cat's loot on a clothesline with a sign that says, my cat is a thief. In just a month, Kate says she's already returned 10 pairs of gloves, a few masks and even a belt. It's MORNING EDITION.
