Tina Ballard moved to North Carolina because she believed FWC would take her monkey. She was there caring for her mother.
The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office issued a warrant after Ballard failed to show up for a bond hearing.
She was arrested by police in North Carolina and returned to Florida.
A judge signed an order increasing her bail to $29,000. It says she can't have her monkey until the case against her is resolved. The judge ordered the animal to be placed with a person or an entity who is legally licensed and who can safely house the animal.
