    A monkey that escaped its owner's home in an Orlando suburb chewed on its neighbors' mail, pulled molding off a police car and rocked back and forth on a street sign.

    Zeek was eventually caught when his owner returned home a short time later.

    Sanford police officers responded to the neighborhood Monday morning after a neighbor phoned in a report that a monkey was eating mail out of a mailbox.

    Zeek jumped on the officers' squad car and pulled some molding off the exterior roof.

    The monkey also drank from a water bottle that the officers offered as a distraction.

    Sanford police officers took video of Zeek and posted it on the agency's Facebook page.

    "Zeek had a little fun with our patrol car," the officers posted about one video.
