Thief’s story undone by victim police complaint

A 20-year-old in Kratie province running away from the scene of an alleged robbery caught the attention of nearby police. Curious as to why someone would be running down the street clutching jewellery and mobile phones, police stopped the man to question him.

Initially the suspect maintained that the stolen goods were his, but after the homeowner found her house a mess and filed a complaint to police, the ruse was quickly undone. The suspect reportedly confessed to the crime and was sent to court.
