Snitch is a dirty ratbot, literally so. He and Sneak are lackeys in Slink's gang, dedicated to petty thievery. In addition to the excellent night vision he shares with the rest of the gang, his tail makes a formidable weapon. Surprisingly his name does not seem to have held him back in his chosen profession.
Snitch, Slink, and Sneak were among the Decepticons imprisoned aboard the Alchemor. They were freed when the ship crashed on Earth, where they because enacting a scheme to engineer a shortage of pet food after discovering how much humans spent on their pets. Thunderhoof and Underbite stumbled on their operation as they pilfered food from a warehouse and Sneak and Snitch scuffled with Underbite until the Autobots turned up. After Strongarm tied up Sneak, Snitch whacked her with his tail and set about freeing his partner. Once that was done, the pair helped Slink load up a forklift with pet food. They escaped as Thunderhoof brought the warehouse down, only to be hunted down and captured by Bumblebee's team.
