NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Nearly two years after a burglar broke into a computer business in Monkey Junction, another culprit has sneaked in - this time it's a possum.
The surveillance system at Chip's Computers on Carolina Beach Road caught the animal creeping around the store Monday night.
Employees now have a new mess to clean up, and a slight case of the jitters.
"It's a giant prehistoric rat," said Vincent Morelli with Chip's Computers. "They say that they won't attack you if they see you. They'll just freeze, but don't touch them. I don't think I'd be willing to risk it."
Workers at Chip's Computers plan to have an animal trapper come to the business to track down the possum.
