MALDEN, Mo. (KFVS) - The search is over for a beloved member of the Malden Police Department.

The department’s ‘night watch’ Lieutenant, which happens to be a cat named Lt. Roach, returned home after he went missing a week ago.

According to Malden Police, Lt. Roach found his way home safely on Tuesday morning, June 22.

The police department’s companion went missing at approximately 2 a.m. on Monday, June 14 after he took an unexpected ride on a patrol car.

Lt. Roach rode on the cruiser for about five blocks, jumped off the vehicle at the intersection of Douglas and Park Streets and took off running west on Park Street.

Malden Police are happy to have their feline partner back.

Lt. Roach has been a member of the Malden Police Department family for approximately four years.

The department also has a canine companion, named Jack Henry Bullock, who has the title of ‘officer in training.’
