This is the hilarious moment when a raccoon shows the police the way in a Colorado store after he was chased out of a wall in which he got stuck.
The critter was seen breaking into the Boulder distribution center after a truck arrived from Louisville with a delivery.
The pallets were unloaded when workers noticed the raccoon crawling out and escaping.
The employees went looking for the animal in the course of 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 find the address in Louisville where the truck picked up the pallets and made sure to send the raccoon back to its stomping grounds.
“He had plenty of shelters and trees and dumpsters,” Whittle said. “I hope he found his family and friends back in Louisville.”
