A fuzzy picture is all the evidence Olympia Police have of a fuzzy suspect spotted in front of the Petco in west Olympia late Saturday night.

Police tweeted: Caught web-handed at Petco tonight! Part of the Castor Canadensis family. Fled from OPD into a storm drain.

Castor Canadensis is the north American beaver. The suspect also could be myocastor coypus, otherwise known as nutria or coypu.

Nothing was reported stolen or damaged.
