Loose Monkey Suspected In Florida Car Break-Ins

MIRABAY, Fla. (UPI) — A Florida resident said he thinks a monkey photographed in his neighborhood might have been behind a pair of car break-ins.

The monkey in the Mirabay neighborhood of Apollo Beach was photographed recently by a neighborhood resident, and experts said it appears to be a rhesus macaque, WTVT reported Tuesday.

Corey Beckman, a WTVT photojournalist, said he spotted the monkey a couple weeks ago while relaxing at his home and soon came to suspect the primate of being behind two car break-ins the previous week.

Beckman said the cars were ransacked, but nothing was taken.

“You’d think anybody breaking into a car wound find it nice seeing a GPS there an iPod but they just left it all sitting here,” Beckman said.

“Maybe it didn’t like my music,” Beckman joked.

The monkey hasn’t caused any injuries and neighbors said they would like to see it relocated without being harmed.
