Pizzeria Burglar Turns Out to Be A Moose

Police in Maine have caught the culprit who broke into a pizza shop. However, the suspect is not in custody.

That's because the suspect is a moose.

"We found the suspect and they are not in custody. Boring right?" The Dover-Foxcroft Police Department posted on its Facebook page.

A picture shows a moose climbing out of a smashed front window to the pizzeria.

Dover-Foxcroft Police Chief Ryan Reardon told the Bangor Daily News that the moose likely got spooked and ran out of the woods. Moose are known to be driven from the woods in the summertime by an increase in bugs, Reardon said.
