Monkey sale is fraud

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies took a report this week about the attempted purchase of a monkey that was later determined to be a case of fraud.

Tracy Hutchinson said she tried to purchase a monkey and sent one payment through Western Union. A couple more payments were eventually made, but Hutchinson now believes the deal was just a scam.

In other matters, Billy Jameson reported a lost wedding ring this week.

David Ortiz reported the theft of medication.
