A Tennessee police department revealed in its burglary investigation that a 'masked' intruder turned out to be a raccoon.
Knoxville police say officers responded to an alarm call early Monday morning at a Boost Mobile location.
When officers arrived they discovered roof damage and later found their suspect, a raccoon, still inside the store.
Once the business owner arrived, they were able to open the door and let the raccoon out of the store.
