Robbery in India is not uncommon, but getting robbed by a monkey is quite unusual. There is a possibility of catching a human thief but what do you do when the thief is a monkey? Well, you can’t just try to get your hands on the guy, or even report it to the cops.
This is what happened at a jewellery store in eastern India. The surveillance footage from the store shows the monkey walking in the store, running around, sitting like a boss on the cashier’s chair, gently opening the drawer and taking out money. The man standing next to him tries to divert its attention with a banana but the monkey runs as soon as it has the money.
People inside the shop run behind it, but all in vain.
Reportedly, this is the second time the monkey entered the shop. The first time it came, it failed to grab anything.

As hilarious as the video is, there are known instances of robbers operating with trained animals to commit crimes across India, especially in smaller towns and cities. It’s not known whether this instance is by one such gang or just a random, hilarious event.
