Reward Offered In Missing Monkey Island Case

stolen monkeyThe owner of the Monkey Island Sanctuary is offering a $3,000 reward for anyone who can help track down his stolen monkeys.

Catherine Montes is accused of taking two monkeys from their cages last October.

Joseph Shinkle, who identified himself as the president of Monkey Island and Zoological Sanctuary, testified in court last week that he gave Montes permission to take the monkeys and he didn't give her any specific time to come and get them.

Dana Savorelli, the man who claimed to own the monkeys, testified that he didn't make that arrangement. Savorelli, owner of Monkey Island, said he just wants the monkeys back and he hopes that the reward will help locate them.

Anyone who knows where the moneys are is asked to call the Crime Stoppers TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
