A bushbaby for a tip? Well, then she must have been amazing.
According to CBS News, a Eugene man was arrested last month after he allegedly broke into his wife’s pet store and stole a laptop, money intended for Girl Scout Cookies and a bushbaby named “Gooey.”
His motive for robbing Zany Zoo Pets? You guessed it: He needed the cash to pay off a hooker and the small primate for a tip.
Police said Nathan Allen McClain robbed the pet store on March 1 and 6. They then found Gooey with an “out-of-town prostitute” at a hotel in Eugene on March 17 and arrested McClain as he walked out of a porn shop while high on meth on March 19.
Through interviews and statements, police determined McClain was the man behind robberies of his wife’s pet store, and he was eventually arrested again last week on prostitution charges.
Gooey has since been relocated to an animal sanctuary, where we assume his nights have been a lot less eventful.
