Meet Real-Life Cat Burglar, Denis The Menace (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Do you live in the Luton area? Are you missing a bath towel, chamois leather or cuddly toy? If so, we think we may have found the culprit.

A cheeky cat has been nicknamed Denis the Menace after embarking on an 18-month stealing spree in his Luton neighbourhood. And if you're not convinced a cat could commit such a string of crimes, just look at the damning video evidence in the CCTV footage above.

Denis's embarrassed owner, Lesley Newman, has now amassed two full boxes of stolen items for neighbours to collect...

According to the Daily Mail, these include: a bath towel, a thong, a football, five paintbrushes, a pair of slippers, a designer shirt, a doll, gloves, men's undies, shoes, tea towels, seven car sponges and a cuddly toy. (Didn't he do well?)

But does Denis look like he gives a monkey's? Does he hell!
