There Kitty

A landlord went into Diego Martinez-Espinoza’s apartment in Chesterfield County, Va., and found only a cat. Espinoza was facing drug charges and had been ordered to wear a GPS tracker while awaiting trial. Months ago, authorities observed Espinoza traveling, but when they called him, he sent them a picture of himself still strapped to the tracker. That happened repeatedly, DEA documents show. Finally the GPS was replaced, but then the replacement stopped working. It had presumably been beeping and nagging the wearer to call the police, but the wearer, being a cat, presumably did not obey. (AC/WTVR Richmond) ...Asked why, the cat said only, “I can haz lawyer?”
