An official with the National Theft Register for Exotic Animals calls it a series of well-organized "specialist crimes." He fears the monkeys were taken to be sold in the illegal pet trade.A spokesman for the zoo that was hit over the weekend says each of the five monkeys it lost are worth between 37-hundred and 55-hundred dollars.
