They aren’t nicknamed masked bandits for no reason.

This weekend, BC Hydro says a raccoon managed to break into one of its work trucks in Burnaby.

And that animal was busy. After somehow getting inside, the animal stole a worker’s lunch before having an afternoon nap on the front seat.

The utility company shared a 30-second clip of the incident on Twitter, saying: “He snoozes, one of our team members loses!”

BC Hydro is lucky the tiny invader didn’t cause damage to the truck interior. Last fall, a West Vancouver family wasn’t so lucky after a family of raccoons broke into their home and caused a lot of chaos.

Hiding out in the home office, the trio of bandits climbed the bookshelves, resulting in dozens of volumes thrown to the floor.
