This is something you don’t hear happening everyday in Clarksville.
Clarksville Police say on a daily basis officers handle a variety of crimes with varying degrees of severity, but police say every now and again, a unique case presents itself to law enforcement.
Police say one of those unique cases has swung their way after officers responded to mobile home located at 115 Denny Road on Friday, September 28th.
Douglas Jackson told police that sometime between 11:15 a.m. and 6:40 p.m. someone broke into his residence and stole his Marmoset monkey, which is estimated to be worth $3,000.
Jackson also told police when he left his residence to go to work, he double checked the door to make sure it was locked and when he returned home, he found his dog running outside and the door wide open and he also discovered that his pet monkey, named Gizzy, was missing.
Police say nothing in the residence was taken, except for Jackson’s pet monkey.
The lead investigator is Detective Dindar Kagan, who is asking anyone with information about the theft to contact him at 931-648-0656.
