Aug. 27 (UPI) -- Police in Florida responded to an early morning call from a resident who needed help ejecting an unusual masked burglar -- a raccoon.

The St. Augustine Police Department said officers responded to the home about 5:30 a.m. Monday on a report of a raccoon inside the house.


The officers used a pair of broomsticks to guide the raccoon from its hiding place behind the window blinds back to the outdoors.

Police said the unusual incident should serve as a reminder to residents to make sure their homes are secure at night.
