A daring rodent has achieved internet fame after it was caught stealing cereal bars from a shop.

In a video posted to Twitter by user @Donnie_Waters, a squirrel is shown staking out a shop and making his move, running off with a cereal bar.

As he films the crime, the narrator can be heard saying “the little homie’s a thief… but we ain’t snitching.”

After his initial theft was recorded, the squirrel returns for one more bite of the bar, nearly getting caught as it knocks over a box.

The video was a huge hit on Twitter, garnering more than 60,000 likes.

Someone even set up a Twitter account for the pesky squirrel.

Now the video has gone viral, surely it’s only a matter of time until this critter gets caught.
