Cookie thieving squirrel caught red-handed on police body cam



No this is not the plot for a new episode of 'The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle.'

Police officers in Brockport, NY responded to a call from some frightened residents -- there was a thief in their home-- a furry cookie thief.

What the officers weren't expecting was to came face-to-face with a cookie bandit squirrel.

Body camera footage from one of the responding officers, recorded in a home’s kitchen, shows a squirrel leaping from the ceiling to one side of the room, down to the table and right into the cop’s body camera. It then leaps off the officer and out of the kitchen into the nearby hallway.

"Officers Sime and Dawson arrived on scene but were not at all expecting the warm welcome they would receive from the squirrel," the Brockport Police Department wrote on Facebook. "The squirrel was ultimately captured by officers and released without injury."

The police officers were called to the house after residents realized the squirrel wasn't just in the house but was actually stealing cookies.

Both cops didn't seem to mind responding to the call as they can be heard laughing throughout the video.
