A thieving monkey entered a jewellery shop in the pretext of reclaiming a fruit but managed to escape with a currency bundle worth Rs 10,000 in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh.
The incident was recorded by the shop’s CCTV cameras. The video was widely shared on social media on Sunday. The shop owner told ANI.
“The monkey threw a guava inside the shop. Then it entered the stores in the pretext of taking back the fruit. We threw the fruit back but it entered the shop anyway,”
Once inside the shop, the monkey lost interest in reclaiming the fruit and advanced towards the cash drawers.
“It first attacked a worker but he escaped. It sat for almost 20 minutes in the store and then it opened the drawer in the cash counter and took away Rs 10,000 cash,” the shop owner added.
