Zeek was eventually caught when his owner returned home a short time later.

Sanford police officers responded to the neighborhood Monday morning after a neighbor called to report that a monkey was eating mail out of a mailbox.

Zeek jumped on the officers’ squad car and pulled some molding off the roof. The monkey also drank from a water bottle the officers offered as a distraction.

Sanford police officers took video of Zeek and posted it on the agency’s Facebook page. “Zeek had a little fun with our patrol car,” the officers posted in one video.
