NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) - Police say they were able to capture a gang of masked bandits seen snooping around an art gallery in Oregon.

Inscapes Gallery owner Cris Torp told KPTV-TV (http://ow.ly/UCCi9) that Newport police caught four raccoons red-pawed Tuesday night.

Police say the raccoons are known only by their street names of “Home Dog,” ”Da Nails,” ”Squeaky Feets” and “Two-Toes Todd.”

Torp says the raccoons have been making frequent visits. He thought he’d fixed the problem by sealing off roof vents, but the animals were already in a crawl space inside the gallery.

They are so small that they didn’t set off the burglar alarm. Torp thinks they were inside for two hours before a passer-by called police.

He says the coons didn’t cause much damage but did try to rearrange some artwork.
