Heavily-armed police surrounded a Manila bank for hours on Tuesday after its alarm went off, only to have the intruders, a pair of cats, escape. The Special Weapons and Tactics unit of Marikina City rushed to the bank at dawn and made sure no one could leave the bank except through the front door. The police then entered the building only to see a stray cat slip through the door and escape. Once inside, the police saw another cat flee through a small hole in the ceiling. Nothing was missing from the bank although cat droppings were all over the place.
