According to police, there was nothing good about it.
Cart was arrested Tuesday morning after allegedly attempting to burglarize a house on North 7th Street shortly after 10 a.m.
Police said the resident of the house drove into his driveway and saw a man at one of the home’s windows. The man fled. A bicycle believed to be the thief’s was left leaning against a wall of the house.
The resident gave the responding officer a description and a few minutes later the officer stopped Cart, who allegedly fit the description including what the suspect was wearing, walking on North 4th.
According to the report, Cart denied attempting to commit any crime.
Cart, 48, of 610 College Road, told police he was walking to Perchville, several miles away, when he took a short cut between houses.
On that route, he said, he saw a rat and gave chase, wanting to kill it.
The officer suspected a rat, but of a different nature.
He returned to the house with Cart, who was identified by the intended victim as the man he saw at the window.
Cart, the report said, denied the bicycle was his, and knew nothing about a chair and ladder which had been placed against the home’s fence.
The suspect was also charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespass and probation violation.
