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 Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
