a Thursday night. Police Retrace Burglary Trails SAN ANTONIO, Sept. .0—(INS) —South Texas police officers today are retracing the legendary career of "Cat-Eye" who was captured Thursday and admitted committing some 500 burglaries in the past 13 years. The 51-year-old suspect, a slight- built Mexican-American, was arrested Thursday by Gonzales county Sheriff L. O. McGlnty after a Waelder, Texas, home was looted in the same, style that hundreds of Bexar county homes have been robbed. In a written statement he admitted burglarizing during Army service in San Antonio In 1942-47, and in the area ever since. His pattern was to remove his shoes, pull the main light switch or fuse and prop open a rear door for swift flight. He said his biggest single loot was $700 and Sheriff Kilday estimated the total at "thousands of dollars."
