A pet bird has been detained in a prison cell after its owner was allegedly caught in shoplifting.

The bird was locked up in the cell in Utrecht after the police realized that they had no suitable cage to put the animal in and were stunned by what to do with it.

The pet, which looks like a lovebird or & # 39; Agapornis & # 39 ;, has since been provided with a meal of bread and water.

The bird was caught together with its owner, who remains anonymous for shoplifting, the authorities said Thursday.

It was on the owner's shoulder during the arrest.

After bringing the couple back to the police station, officers realized they didn't have a bird cage to hold the animal.

In a post uploaded to the Instagram page of the Utrecht Police Center, the department said: & # 39; we recently arrested a suspect for shoplifting.

& # 39; During the arrest, we found a sneaky witness with feathers and beak on the suspect's shoulder …

& # 39; We were shocked when we discovered that we don't have a bird cell or cage.

& # 39; After proper consultation with the suspect, we have put them together … and (the bird) is of course well cared for! & # 39;

A photo shared by the department shows the bird perching on the cell bench next to two slices of white bread.

The owner, along with the bird, has since been released from prison, according to reports in the local media.
