Footage of woman brazenly fleeing with a bracelet from a jewellery store in Bangi.
The one-minute video shows a jewellery store with a female employee and a female ‘customer’, dressed in light-coloured pants and black shirt and with a black scarf on her head.
The woman, who appears to be in her 20s, is seen looking at the jewellery in the display cases before pointing towards a bracelet.
The employee takes out the bracelet and even helps the woman try it on. While the employee is calculating the price, the woman throws a backwards glance towards the door.
Suddenly, the woman quickly moves to the door, fleeing the shop with the bracelet on her wrist, and leaving the employee stunned.
The incident is believed to have occurred in a jewellery store in Bandar Baru Bangi at about 1pm yesterday.
The CCTV footage was uploaded by Facebook user Aishah Yusoff and has garnered close to half a million views.
Kajang police chief Assistant Commissioner Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussof said the stolen bracelet was estimated to be worth about RM10,000, the New Straits Times reported.
“Efforts are ongoing to track down the woman,” he said.
The case is being investigated under Section 380 of the Penal Code for theft.
