LUFKIN, Texas—Police who surrounded a house in eastern Texas because they thought they had a burglary in progress found a deer instead.

The homeowner called Lufkin police early Thursday after she heard glass breaking. The woman hid in a closet and realized she had left her weapon in the kitchen. Officers were worried it could end up in the hands of the suspect.

Video posted on Facebook shows officers entering the home, yelling, “Police! Let me see your hands!” Police say as the officers rounded a corner, they came “face to face with one very frightened doe.”

An officer shouted “It’s a deer! It’s a deer! It’s a deer!”

The officers used chairs to shoo the deer out the door.

Hungry Burglar Cooks and Cleans

In 2017 a burglar in Hicksville, NY, cooked food, washed dishes, and even left a $1 tip in a tip jar before leaving Nelly’s Taqueria.

Security camera footage revealed that the burglar even put on food service gloves to prepare a meal, the Associated Press reported.

Will Colon, who discovered the restaurant had been burglarized when he came in the next morning, said the burglar was “cooking up a storm.”

In this case, the burglar also stole cash. He cracked open the cash register and left with the contents, according to the Associated Press.

Colon said the burglar cooked beans, chicken, and shrimp, and that “the dude had some skills.”

After the burglar was finished with his meal, he wiped down the counter, and covered and refrigerated the food that was left over.
