By Ben Hooper, screenshot: CBS Sacramento. SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif., July 7 -- A California family said a mother bear and her cubs broke into their house to steal some Fourth of July pies.

Brian Halligan said he and his family came home during the holiday weekend to find their refrigerator had been raided by some sloppy burglars who ate their berry pies as well as most of their holiday spread.

Halligan said the kitchen was trashed and there were cheese sticks left behind in a bedroom.

He said the family's youngest daughter spotted the culprits fleeing the domicile.
