PLACER COUNTY, Ca. (CNN) -- There are so many bears in Placer County’s mountain communities, that dealing with them has become part of deputies s job descriptions here

Much of that work is recorded on their dash cameras, and a well-known suspect made an appearance recently.

Placer County deputies found a familiar black bear they call “T-shirt” trapped inside a dumpster, and used some unscripted techniques to finally free the 400 pound beast.
