Accused cat burglar found incompetent for trial in case of stolen feline

A Vermont man charged with repeatedly entering a family home and stealing a cat has been found incompetent to stand trial.

The Caledonian Record reports an Orleans Superior Court judge said Monday that 54-year-old Mark Frady's lawyer and prosecutors agreed that he's been found not competent to face charges. He remains jailed on bail until a hospitalization hearing.

The North Troy man had pleaded not guilty to burglary and unlawful trespass charges. Police say Frady stole a cat named "Boots" from a family in Troy in January after saying he was looking for his cat, "Mason."

Police say Frady was found in the family's home and was asked to leave. They say Frady returned twice and was chased out of the basement.
