Stolen cellphone records raccoon robber's high-octane heist

Not all animals are our friends. Guy Williams propped his phone up on the ground to take a video of a raccoon he had affectionately nicknamed “Stanley,” but Stanley saw it as an opportunity. Once he spotted the camera, Stanley picked up the phone and made a run for it. Well played, Stanley.  Luckily, the camera continued rolling, and we can all now enjoy the instant-classic footage of Stanley’s attempted heist.
