NEWPORT, OR (KPTV) -

Newport Police caught a group of raccoons after the masked bandits recently burglarized a Newport-area art gallery.

According to a Newport Police Department post on Facebook Wednesday, the incident occurred shortly after midnight at the Inscapes Gallery on SW Bay Boulevard. Officers responded to a report of suspicious activity and cornered the raccoons when they entered the business. 

Police say the raccoons, known only by their street names of "Home Dog," "Da Nails," "Squeaky Feets," and "2-Toes Todd," attempted to elude officers but were captured after a brief scuffle. No one was injured.

"'Squeaky Feets' told officers they had no intention of taking anything from the gallery; they were only trying to straighten a few pieces of art on the wall," the Facebook post reads. "Tell it to the judge, 'Feets'. Tell it to the judge."
