” After a few dog treats disappeared, employees at a Dollar General store in Clinton soon discovered their thief was a four-legged bandit.

  Cato the husky spends most of his days lounging around his Clinton house, but it’s what he does when he gets out that has his owner worried.

” My dog was shoplifting,” laughed Holly Darden, Cato’s owner.

  Wednesday morning, Cato got off his leash and took off. And not long after his escape, the Dollar General store on South Broad Street was robbed.

” We didn’t know it happened because he just snuck in with the customers,” said store manager Anastasia Polson.

  Polson said it happened twice within a few minutes. She said someone had stolen pig ears, beef bones, dog food and treats off the shelf.”
