It’s more than a month until Halloween and we’ve already got crazy people dressed in funny costumes doing illegal things.

Someone in a full-body CHIPMUNK costume went into a pharmacy in Ville Platte, Louisiana on Saturday afternoon . . . pulled out a GUN . . . and robbed the place.

The chipmunk stole a bunch of pills, then ran out of the store.  He also stole the pharmacist’s cell phone, but when she told him there were pictures of her grand-kids on there, he popped out the SIM card so she wouldn’t lose those.

The cops are now trying to track down the pill-stealing, gun-toting chipmunk who also has a soft side.
