Monkey robs jewelry store

In a bizarre incident, a jewelry shop in India's southern Andhra Pradesh state was robbed of 10,000 rupees ($150) by a monkey.

Surveillance video showed the monkey right outside of the store.  A worker threw the monkey a piece of fruit and shut the door. But the monkey then pushed the shop door opened and scampered inside.
It jumped onto a chair behind the counter.  After finishing eating the piece of fruit it opened the drawer, pulled out the money and then ran away as the man chased him.

It was unclear why the monkey was interested in the cash. The incident took place on May 23 but the footage was only released on Saturday
