RCMP responded to a break and enter Monday at the Petro Canada in Radium Hot Springs, B.C. Police were shocked when a surveillance video revealed the suspect to be much furrier than expected.
The surveillance video shows a black bear charging into the store at around 4 a.m. Monday and walking up and down the aisles.
Petro Canada employee Lori Ellingboe told ctvbc.ca that she arrived with police at the scene to find significant damage to the storefront.
"The front door had been smashed and there was glass all over the place. We thought it was a robbery," she said.
Ellingboe said they were confused that the robber hadn't caused more damage to the store.
"Nothing was missing and nothing had been vandalized. But then we saw that it had gone to the bathroom -- left us a little gift," she said. "That was our first sign it was a bear."
