    Thieves caught trying to nab stool pigeon parrot

    MEMPHIS (AP) - Fearing a 6-year-old parrot named Marshmallow could identify
    them, three thieves returned to the scene of the crime to silence the bird -
    only to be caught by police.

    After making off with a booty of DVD players, computers, radios, TVs and
    other electronic gear - one of the suspects realized a parrot in the home
    had heard him using the nickname "J. J." and was repeating it.

    "They were afraid the bird would 'stool' on them," police Maj. Billy Garrett
    said. "They actually believed he could identify them."

    They decided to go back for the bird, loading it into the getaway car as
    police arrived on the scene. The chase ended in just a few blocks, with the
    men crashing their car.

    The foot-tall parrot, with light green feathers, flew away when his cage
    broke open in the crash. It hasn't been seen since.

    Victim Felicia Cobbs said her kids still hope to find the missing pet.

    Police charged Mark Martin, 18, Dallas Davis, 25, and Jarrin Hicks, 21, with
    aggravated burglary and evading arrest.
