Parrot helped catch robbers
El Salvador, Las Ultimas Noticias

A parrot has become a celebrity in El Salvador after it helped police catch a gang of robbers.

The robbers stole the parrot, named Paquita, in a raid on a house in San Salvador, reports Las Ultimas Noticias.

And when the getaway car was stopped by police for a routine check, the bird squawked: "Robbery! Robbery!"

A police spokesperson said: "What a fantastic bird! It repeated what its owner said when she saw the robbers.

"It made us suspicious and we checked the car and found the stolen goods."

The gang was arrested and the parrot was pictured in all the country's newspapers.
