- The Sanford Police Department had a busy morning after residents reported a monkey was eating their mail.

Police say they received calls from concerned residents in the Hidden Lakes subdivision that a monkey was eating mail out of a mailbox around 8 a.m.

Video posted to Facebook shows that, when officers arrived to help, the monkey -- later identified at "Zeek" -- decided to pull off molding from one of the patrol cars.
