Suspect Arrested in Missing Tamarin Monkeys Case at Dallas Zoo: “Further Charges Possible”

A suspect has been arrested in connection with the recent disappearance of two tamarin monkeys from the Dallas Zoo, police confirmed on Wednesday.

The arrest comes after a weeks-long investigation into the theft of the two monkeys, which were taken from the zoo on January 28.

The suspect, who has not been identified, is facing charges of theft and could face further charges, police said.

The monkeys, a male and a female, were part of a group of endangered Goeldi’s monkeys that were part of the zoo’s collection.

The Dallas Zoo has offered a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the safe return of the monkeys.

The arrest is a significant development in the case and police are hopeful that the monkeys will be found safe and returned to the zoo.

“We are grateful for the hard work of our detectives and the assistance of the public in helping us make this arrest,” said Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia.

The suspect is expected to appear in court in the coming days.
