Police took an intoxicated masked bandit into custody Tuesday, but he’s not quite what you might expect.

His name is Dallas, and he’s a raccoon.

Milton Police say they've had recent calls about suspected rabid raccoons. As it turns out, officers say they’re actually getting drunk on fermented crabapples.

Police say neighbors helped them capture Dallas who, along with another raccoon caught Monday, were released unharmed near the woods.

Officers offer this advice: if you see a disoriented raccoon, do not approach it. It could be sick – or if it’s like Dallas, just high on life.
