This is the hilarious moment a raccoon gives cops the runaround at a Colorado store after it was chased out of a wall it got trapped in.

The pallets were being unloaded when workers noticed the raccoon crawl out and escape.
The employees launched a search for the animal during the morning and were unable to find it.

‘We finally found the raccoon we were looking for,’ Whittle said.
Whittle said they were able to track down the Louisville address where the truck picked up the pallets and made sure to send the raccoon back to its stomping grounds.
‘He had plenty of hiding spots and trees and dumpsters,’ Whittle said. ‘I hope he found his family and friends back in Louisville.’
