Two Teens Arrested Over Monkey Thefts

Police have arrested two teenagers over the theft of eight monkeys from a wildlife park at Helensburgh, south of Sydney.

On Sunday 30 May this year, four Cotton Top Tamarins and four Pygmy Marmoset monkeys were removed from their cages and stolen from the park in Lawrence Hargrave Drive.

Two days later, police recovered three of the Tamarins in a cage, dumped in an Auburn park.

On June 2, the four Marmosets were also located after being left in the care of an Auburn veterinary clinic.

Investigations into the whereabouts of the remaining Tamarin are continuing.
