An intruder smashed through the window of an empty business in Orangeburg, South Carolina.

Cops showed up in time to catch the culprit looking like a deer caught in the headlights.

It was a deer caught in the glaring lights of two officers.

But, when one of the cops opened the door, the deer ran off.

That deer caused about $800 in damage when it crashed through the large glass window.

The officers' report says simply that the crime was property damage and forced entry.

And, the "subject" was a "large male deer."
