Police had to deal with a masked intruder inside a Lexington home early Tuesday morning, but it wasn't the typical case for officers.
A raccoon made its way into a family's living room and caused quite a ruckus.
Police went to a home along Halifax Court around 2 a.m. Crystal Schmidt said she locked herself and her son in a back bedroom as their lab chased the critter around the living room.
"We woke up to a big bang and our lab going crazy. So, I grab my son's light saber and come out here and find a raccoon sitting on my couch," she said. "Not something you want to wake up to in the middle of the night."
Officers teamed up on the raccoon and managed to chase it out the front door.
Apparently, the animal tore a hole through the ceiling to get inside.
Nobody was hurt, but the melee did cause some damage inside the home.
