A lemur named Gizmo was stolen from a home in Alabama, along with a TV.
The thief has been caught after he asked his sister to look after it.
The guy told her it belonged to a friend serving in Afghanistan. But things got interesting when the lemur's owner posted fliers with the lemur's picture and an offer of a reward. The guy's sister realized she had Gizmo and asked her brother to get the lemur, but he sent a friend to pick it up instead. He also had the friend contact the owner to tell her they had taken her pet and wanted the money in return for it.
But a tipster sent the cops to the guy's friend. They arrested him and returned the lemur to the owner.
Police eventually pulled over the real thief and arrested him.
