Man killed by Brightline train in Boynton

NEW: $10,000 reward for return of pet monkey stolen in South Florida


A Broward County family is offering a $10,000 reward for the return of their 3-month-old capuchin monkey that was stolen from their home.

Carl Minix said someone broke into his house through a bedroom window while he and his wife were out to dinner and took their exotic pet named Henry but nothing else, WSVN in Miami reported.

Minix said he spent about $9,000 on Henrey, including the time and expense of getting a state permit. "I worked a long time to be able to get him," he said.

But it's about more than money. "That’s my child," he said.

Minix hired investigator Jamie Katz to help in the search. "Just give him up. There's no questions asked," Katz said. "They’re will be no charges, no anything. We just want Henry back."

Anyone with information can call Katz at (502) 424-9469 or contact her through her website. You can also call Broward County Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS.
