The Ephrata Police arrested Jonathan Michael Steffy, 23, of Ephrata, Pa on an outstanding Lancaster County bench warrant.
Steffy ran from police when they located him in the backyard of a residence on Duke St., so police set a perimeter and began searching for Steffy.
One officer noticed a black cat in a backyard. It was crouched and watching something intently in the vicinity of a shed. The officer checked the shed, but found nothing. He again saw the cat and noted that it was looking past him toward another shed.
The officer then located Steffy at this second shed and took him into custody without further incident.
The Ephrata PD is thankful for any crime fighting assistance we get, whether human or feline!
