RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Talk about monkey business. A bizarre story out of Amherst County where a woman reportedly entered the courthouse yesterday with a tiny monkey tucked into her bra.

Strange but true as authorities there say, "you just can't make this stuff up."

The Times Dispatch reports the woman was filling out some paperwork when she pulled the monkey out to show a court official.

She explained her pet, Cara, was a 7 week old Marmoset who needs constant attention.

Deputies say although the event was unusual, there was nothing unlawful about the monkey being there.

When asked who let the primate through the metal detector, they even joked, "it wasn't armed."
