Malaysian student Zackrydz Rodzi woke up last Saturday morning to find that his smartphone was missing. A day later, he found it in the jungle behind his home, but how?
"There was no sign of robbery. The only thing on my mind was is it some kind of sorcery," Rodzi told the BBC.
It wasn't until Rodzi's dad noticed a monkey outside their house on Sunday that he decided to called his son's phone again and heard it ringing from the jungle, which was just beyond their garden. There was the phone, a bit battered but in OK shape, beneath a palm tree.
So, how did they figure out whodunit? Rodzi's uncle jokingly suggested that the thief may have left photographic evidence on the phone, so they went through the gallery. Low and behold, it was full of monkey selfies and a video.
Rodzi told the BBC that it's uncommon for monkeys to steal items from their neighborhood in Batu Pahat, but this thief may have snuck in through his brother's window.
The best part of the footage is the video the monkey took of itself, which I liken to any FaceTime with a relative who can't quite get the camera angle working correctly.
