Oscar, the three-legged pooch who shot to notoriety after being caught on camera stealing a dog roll at an Invercargill dairy, has been released from behind bars and is back home with his owner.
On January 12, the pinching pooch was nabbed when he left evidence of his crime a few streets away from the Alray Dairy in Windsor, where the dog roll wrapper was found.
A resident later found the three-legged thief wandering the streets and called the pound, who came to collect him.
After a 10-day stint in the joint, Oscar was reportedly reunited with his owner this week.
