Authorities often see strange things as they patrol the border, but yesterday was a first for Officer Morrili. He and fellow officers spotted a large man crossing the river near Lajitas. When the suspect came closer, Officers noticed that the man was not large, but instead had a monkey on his back. Senior Officer Mike Hoboton stated " both suspects will be deported to their respected countries, although the chimp wont tell us where he's from."
