Folks: there's a lesson about crime and monkeys we can all learn from Michael and Lisa Shinkle of Buchanan County (near St. Joseph, Missouri).

If you're in the market for pig-tailed macaques, don't get them from monkey-nappers. The hammer of justice will fall on you.

St. Joseph News-Press had the story, with this incredible headline:

"SECOND MONKEY TRIAL AVERTED"
