GRAND JUNCTION — A Missouri woman who says she was pepper-sprayed and robbed last fall when she tried to sell a Capuchin monkey in the parking lot of a Grand Junction hotel has been sanctioned by state authorities.

The Colorado Department of Agriculture issued a cease-and-desist letter to Cheryl Ullrich for alleged violations of a state law that prohibits the importation, transfer or sale of non-human primates in Colorado.

Authorities say the woman owns Cheryl's Primates of Chillicothe, Mo. The woman told police the man who attacked her stole her monkey, and the case has gone cold.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (http://tinyurl.com/la2hxqx ), the state notified Ullrich an injunction or restraining order will be sought if Ullrich continues the activities in Colorado.

Ullrich declined to comment on the allegations.
