Masked bandit

GONZALES, La. (AP) — The Gonzales Police Department says a masked bandit is on the loose after leaping into a garbage truck and causing a crash.

A news release Tuesday said the driver told investigators a big raccoon leaped into his cab, landing on his chest and legs as he pulled away from a stop on Christmas Eve. He was frightened and stood up, which caused him to hit the gas pedal.
