AMHERST COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — You’ve probably heard of “my dog ate my homework,” or “my cat scratched up the furniture,” but what about “my monkey destroyed my vehicle tags?”
According to the Amherst County Sheriff’s Office Community Action Facebook page, targeted traffic and narcotics enforcement were conducted this week in response to traffic concerns voiced by members of the Lowesville community.
During their enforcement operations, deputies came across a vehicle without visible tags on Thursday, Dec. 2, officials say.
When authorities questioned the driver, she reportedly told them that her monkey ruined her temporary tags. Then, while deputies gathered additional information, the monkey jumped out of the vehicle.
“We always enjoy our encounters with community members when we get to interact with and learn about things we don’t often see,” Amherst County Sheriff’s Office Community Action wrote on Facebook.
Deputies, traffic, K9, and narcotics investigators participated in these enforcement efforts, which officials plan to provide more information about in the near future.
