CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Bear spotted casually prowling around grocery store

TAHOE CITY, Calif. (CBS Newspath) - One grocery store dedicated to welcoming customers got a little more than they bargained for when an unexpected guest showed up last week.

A black bear strolled through the aisles of a supermarket in Tahoe City, California. A deputy caught the bear on video and used a spotlight to show the bear near some shopping carts.

Law enforcement used the video to remind people that bears are usually on the prowl this time of year --- hunting for food before hibernation.

"Remember not to leave food in your car and to keep car doors locked," the Placer County Sheriff's Office wrote.

The bear was at the Tahoe City Safeway at the Lighthouse Center, deputies said.
