New York police officers weren’t anticipating a squirrel’s decision to evade capture, but their body cameras captured the moment it decided to run.
According to NBC 4 New York, Brockport Police Officers Sime and Dawson were called to a home after a thieving squirrel broke in and ate all of the cookies.
When the officers arrived on the scene, music could be heard blasting in the background. When they inquired about it, a woman could be heard saying that it was the squirrel’s doing.
“The squirrel turned it on?” they asked.
The crazed thief was then seen flying through the air, running on a countertop and then jumping on the nearest officer. The squirrel continued to run around until police managed to capture it.
The department shared the ordeal on Facebook.
