Despite allegations of burglary, the raccoon bailed out of the machine when it was opened up outside the school.

DELTONA — Police say a raccoon trapped in a vending machine at a Florida high school is now free.

Volusia County Sheriff's Office spokesman Andrew Gant says a deputy stationed at Pine Ridge High School in Deltona was notified of the trapped raccoon Wednesday and called animal control for assistance. A vending machine operator was also contacted to unlock the door.

They rolled the vending machine to an open area of the school, and after about two hours the raccoon was set free.

A photo on the sheriff's Facebook page shows the raccoon making itself comfortable in between snacks.

The Sheriff's Office joked about it, saying, "This gentleman was apprehended today while committing a burglary of a vending machine at Pine Ridge High School."

After freeing the raccoon, they said, "he's off to his next adventure."
