Monkey caught on camera stealing from cash register

Shopkeepers in India have tried - but failed - to stop an unlikely thief.

Security cameras captured a monkey slipping into the jewellery store.

He had no trouble finding what he was after, going straight for the till - and grabbing the cash.

By the time the shopkeepers realised they were being robbed it was too late.

With a wad of notes in his mouth, the cheeky primate made a break for the front door, with the angry owners in hot pursuit.
