Raccoon warned after deputies catch it ‘burglarizing’ vending machine

(WHDH) — A raccoon that was found peering out of the bottom of a vending machine at a high school in Florida was let go with just a warning on Wednesday.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office shared a photo of the tiny critter sitting under a row of Pop Tarts.

“This gentleman was apprehended today while committing a burglary of a vending machine at Pine Ridge High School,” the department said in a tweet.

Officials did not say if the raccoon helped itself to a snack while in the machine.
