Pearl called law enforcement to report the crime, and when the officer arrived, she spotted Joey running around inside and asked if he bites. "Not usually," was Pearl's reply. The officer clearly took note as she departed to begin the investigation.
Just a few hours later, Pearl got a call saying the burglar had been apprehended. During routine questioning, the officer had noticed scratches on the man's hand and asked if a squirrel had done it. The man said yes, adding that the attack had been relentless.
Joey had left his mark - and that helped crack the case.
