Squirrel takes aim at officer trying to catch it

When one of the officers walked into the kitchen, he joked about the radio being on, which the homeowner responded by saying "the squirrel turned it on".

Brockport police said they were glad they were able to help out.

The squirrel then runs out of the room leaving the officers laughing hysterically. Unfortunately, the cookies couldn't be saved.
