BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - A woman who suspected her roommate of torturing her cat installed a spy camera and caught the abuse on videotape.

Police arrested 25-year-old Jordan Bean Tuesday on a charge of animal cruelty after Alanna Jenkins did some preliminary undercover work.

The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/W22WuI ) reports Jenkins was suspicious because her belongings were often misplaced when she returned from work. So she installed the camera. Police say the video shows Bean entering Jenkins' room and "actively" hunting the cat, named Chompers.

The cat is seen hissing and moaning before Beans catches it and wraps it in a towel. Bean then seemed to smother the cat while holding her down with "all of his weight." Bean told police he chases the cat and wraps her in a towel.
