"All I got were a few shrinking door keys and a biting kettle. There was some pretty nasty stuff that wasn't my department, though. Mortlake was taken away for questioning about some extremely odd ferrets, but that's the Committee on Experimental Charms, thank goodness ..."
-- Arthur Weasley (CS3)

Arthur Weasley participates in six overnight raids, in his capacity as head of the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts office, but members of the Committee on Experimental Charms discovered some “extremely odd ferrets” which had been owned by a wizard named Mortlake (CS3).
