Burglary suspect turns out to be raccoon hiding under plant

PALM BAY, Fla. (AP) — Police officers responding to a burglary call at a property management office in central Florida found an unlikely culprit — a raccoon hiding behind a potted plant.

A concerned worker called 911 Wednesday morning after finding several ceiling tiles on the floor and papers strewn about the All Florida Properties office in Palm Bay.

Lt. Mike Bandish tells Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/1Xmq3iK ) officers arrived at the office and began going room to room to find out why the office was in such disarray.

That’s when they found the raccoon. They captured it with a catch pole and led it out of the office and into a wooded area behind the building.

Brevard County Animal Service workers searched the attic to see if more raccoons were in the building.
