Watch: Monkey robs jewellery store

A monkey has been caught on CCTV robbing a jewellery store of $10,000 ($215) rupees in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

The animal runs a distraction outside the store after being offered a bit of fruit by one of the store attendants, before pushing the door open and grabbing a wad of cash from the drawer and escaping.

An attendant tried to offer the monkey a piece of banana in exchange for the cash, but the monkey quickly made off and is now on the run.
