Courtesy: Redding Police Department

Redding police discovered a stinky stowaway inside one of their police vehicles this weekend. A small skunk was found walking around inside the back of a police vehicle.

It happened over the weekend after an officer arrested a woman and booked her into jail. The suspect had property that couldn't go with her to jail, so Officer Veilleauz took the property to be booked into evidence.

When he opened the back of the patrol car, he learned there was a small skunk stowed away in the woman's property. The animal was found walking around inside the back of his car.

Police say no one was sprayed and the skunk was turned over to Haven Humane.
