A burglar "dropped in" on a police station in Alabama. 

The suspect should be easy to spot.  He's wearing a mask and covered in fur.  On security camera video, you can see a raccoon falling from the ceiling at the Gardendale Police Department.  He was in no hurry to leave.  You can see the animal sniffing around the lobby area.  When officers went after him, he first held on to an inside door.  Later, he tried fighting to get back in clinging onto the metal exit door before admitting defeat and running away. 

Police say they have since  found all the raccoon's entry points into the station house and blocked them off.
