We have ourselves a real-life jailbird story.

It appears that police in the Netherlands arrested a man for shoplifting who had a pet parakeet with him. The police not only arrested the man but also his feathered accomplice who they say witnessed the whole thing.

Police in Utrecht, a town outside of Amsterdam, snapped a picture of the bird cooling its claws behind bars, perched next to a half-eaten sandwich.

Dutch news organization RTV Utrecht blurred out the bird’s eyes to keep its identity private.

It is unclear if the bird has turned on its owner but police say the bird is being very well taken care of.
