When staff arrived at John Bead Clearance Outlet in Toronto on Saturday, they were sure the store had been burglarized. Merchandise was scattered all over the floor.

But when they looked at security video, they were surprised to find that no criminals were involved, BlogTO reports. Not human ones, anyway.

The culprit was a raccoon.

The animal fell through a tile in the craft and jewelry store’s new roof. Fortunately, he didn’t take anything, except possibly some trash or snacks.

“It appeared to be a break-in,” the store said in a Facebook post. “Luckily, the thief was caught and we can share video footage of him in case you see him in your neighbourhood.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
