SANTA ANA, Calif. (KTLA/LA Times) -- A man charged with a series of residential burglaries in Newport Beach is also a suspect in the theft of a lemur that was rescued after being abandoned at a Newport Beach hotel last year, police said Thursday.

A 32-year-old ring-tailed lemur was taken from the Santa Ana Zoo last summer when someone trespassed onto the property and cut through two enclosures housing lemurs and capuchin monkeys.

Several animals escaped the enclosures but were recovered on the property. However, one zoo resident, Isaac the lemur, could not be found.
