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.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
