Raccoon Drops In For Visit at Alabama Police Station
GARDENDALE, Ala. (CNN) – A burglar ‘dropped in’ on a police station north of Birmingham this week. He got caught red-handed on security camera video, too.
The suspect was wearing a mask and was covered in fur. It was a raccoon, who fell through the ceiling!
He was in no hurry, either. He sniffed around the lobby. Police in the office got wind he was in there and tried to chase him out. He climbed up a door and gripped on with his claws.
Police used a tool to move him outside the building. Even then, he tried clinging on to the metal exit door, trying to get back inside.
“It actually wanted back in the building and it fought there at the door trying to get back in,” said Sgt. Scott Banks. ”It really didn’t want outside, so it liked it here at the new Public Safety Center and it wanted to stay.”
Gardendale Police say they determined where the raccoon got in the building. They’ve blocked them off.
