Stolen Cardboard Monkey 'Whiplash' Returned
A teenage thief came clean with the monkey called Whiplash Thursday night.
A cardboard cutout of the monkey known for riding a dog at rodeos was stolen from Taco John's last week.
After the story aired at 5 p.m. on KMBC, Whiplash was returned.
"I was on the register taking orders and he walked in and set it down here on the counter and said, 'Sorry for stealing this,' and turned around and left. His dad was standing behind him," nightshift manager Ginger Fleming said.
KMBC reported that the boy's dad may have done some encouraging. The cardboard cutout of Whiplash will be auctioned off for charity in the coming weeks. It will stay locked in the back office in the meantime.
