Capt. Patrick Foy says Friday (local time) that investigators determined the singer didn't have a permit for the capuchin monkey, named Fiji.

The singer posted an Instagram video last month showing his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty, cuddling with the monkey. Foy says that prompted a half-dozen calls to the wildlife department from concerned people.

Foy says Brown agreed to cooperate. Agents served a search warrant January 2 at his home.

Foy says Brown wasn't there but had employees hand over the monkey in a cage.

Fiji is now at an undisclosed facility.

Brown could face a misdemeanour charge carrying a potential six-month jail sentence.

Email and phone message requests for comment from his representatives weren't immediately returned.
