Men Steal Disabled Woman's Helper Monkey

Putnam County deputies are looking for the men who stole a companion monkey from a woman with mental disabilities.

Joan Newberger was showing the marmoset monkey to four men Friday evening at Acme Grooming and Pet Haven Adoption Service in San Mateo.

The sheriff's office reports that one of the men grabbed the monkey from Newberger and cut the animal's leash with a pair of scissors.

The men ran from the store and the $4,900 monkey was taken away in a black sport utility vehicle.

Major Keith Riddick said it was the second time in six months that this type of monkey was stolen from the business.
