Two “masked” thieves broke into a California bank utilizing a approach straight out of the videos: crawling alongside air ducts – only to tumble as a result of the ceiling tiles and onto the ground.
The raccoons ended up caught on digicam by a customer who observed the heist although he was withdrawing money outside the bank in Redwood Metropolis on Wednesday, ABC Eyewitness Information claimed.
In photos, the raccoons can be witnessed prowling the halls and sitting at a desk. In just one impression, just one of the raccoons – who seems to be the chief – retains out a paw, seemingly directing his accomplice to the subsequent concentrate on inside of the bank.
Regrettably for them, another person lifted the alarm and termed the Society for the Avoidance of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
“It’s not every day an animal organisation gets termed to offer with a bank crack-in, but considering the fact that the bank robbers ended up masked bandits of the wildlife kind, we ended up without a doubt the appropriate responders,” Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA communications manager, Buffy Martin Tarbox, told the ABC.
Soon after a ten-moment foot chase, the rescue workers “were ultimately equipped to safely and securely shoo them outside”, claimed Tarbox.
The subsequent investigation discovered muddy paw prints on a tree outside the bank. The suspects are understood to have climbed the tree and entered the air ducts prior to slipping as a result of the ceiling tiles and onto the ground of the bank.
“There ended up a number of broken ceiling tiles, and the masked bandits knocked papers close to and even a computer system more than. Luckily the raccoons ended up not hurt during their early morning escapade, and to our know-how they didn’t abscond with any money,” Tarbox told the ABC.
