A “pawsitively” bad dog in Clinton, S.C. was apprehended last week after he was caught on security camera taking off with goods from a Dollar General.

The crime spree began when Cato the Husky broke away from his leash and headed straight for the store.

According to Fox Carolina, the surveillance cameras showed Cato walking up to the doors at approximately 9:38 a.m., however, the doors closed before he could make his way in. Finally, he was able to sneak in with customers where he proceeded to rob the store of pigs ears, beef bones, dog food, and treats.

The four-legged bandit then left the store in less than a minute, but returned about three minutes later.

"We had to lock the door to keep him from coming back in," said store manager Anastasia Polson.

Cato must have known that he needed to hide his loot because he took all the stolen goods and buried them nearby.

The police, who filled out a report just for the fun of it, might have asked Cato for a confession, but the four-legged bandit exercised his fifth amendment -- right against self-incrimination.

The 'red-pawed' dog did have to spend some time in the pokey, but Holly Darden, Cato’s mom, bailed him out and paid for the stolen goods.

This isn't the first time Cato has entered local businesses.

"He's gotten into Ingles. He's gotten into BI-LO. He goes to Pizza Hut. And he goes up to Yo Cup which is downtown too," Darden said.

We are happy to report that Cato is now back home lounging around the house.

Why was this tolerated by the police?

Stray dogs should be shot dead.

If their owners can be identified they should be jailed and fined.

No, Obama likes felons, it is okay! Besides, I had a dog in the past who liked to borrow, I typed borrow, the neighbor's dog's toys often, I always gave them back. Hope I typed that correctly, I have a migraine.

Two things that cure migraines. A cat purring while it massages your scalp and orgasms. Culvert kitty or your husband needs to take care of you.

The snow needs to melt, it is killing my eyes during the day which leads to migraines. Culvert kitty would tear me to pieces if I touched him. He was hissing this a.m. My husband would agree with you!

Years ago, I had a puppy...say 10 months old.

Remember when stores allowed pets for the 1st time, and I meant pet stores..........wife thought it a good idea to take pup to the store.

well my dog on a leash successfully overturned a gondola with the leash, as she darted to snag bone dog heaven.

Leash got under corner of gondola, and dog took off at light speed.........

dog was slowed for a split second, but dove head first into the bottom shelf of bog bones, and everywhere they went a flying.

dog laying on the shelf of standing gondola rack, while one next to it is a wreck.

after the shock of what just occurred, we did have a good laugh at the dog who was to busy eating bones as fast as she could to even notice 30 feet of overturned gondola, and the mess of her destruction.

That dog never again was taken in a car I don't think.
