ROANOKE, Co., Va. (WSET) -- You just never know what you're going to get into as a police officer.

Officer Thayer with the Roanoke County Police Department said he responded to a call at 5 a.m. after a 200 lb. bear managed to open the door of a vehicle, lock himself inside, and hock the horn; which of course woke up the homeowners.

The bear found some treats inside that caused minor damage to the vehicle, according to police.

The officer was able to open the back door and the little guy eventually found his way out and ran off into the woods.
