Today's KOD goes to a Florida car theif who had an accomplice – a capuchin monkey.

This guy allegedly stole a car he found unlocked with the keys hidden under a floor mat. Deputies found him after he apparently crashed the car into a ditch, with a monkey clinging to his body.

He told the police he purchased the primate about four years ago, but investigators found he did not have a permit for the exotic pet. He's been arrested for grand theft auto charges along with possession of an exotic animal without a permit.
