THIEF CAUGHT RED HANDED ON CCTV FOR STEALING HANDPHONE

I dropped my phone when my colleagues and I were carrying bulky bags to the event venue opposite our office building. When my colleague tried to call my phone barely 5 minutes later to explain that I am the owner of the phone, the person on the other line stumbled, “who are you…ahh… wrong number.” Then my phone was never on again.

CCTV showed this guy appearing a couple of minutes after I left, looking around before picking up my phone at the entrance, started pressing it, checked out the CCTV, walked away and pressed the phone again only when he thought he was out of sight from the CCTV (1st CCTV video can be seen in the post and 2nd video under comment). Carelessness was my bad, but refusing to return the phone knowing the owner was in the vicinity was a real low. One of the times I wished I were either an IPhone user with tracker or one of those who regularly post travel photos on FB because there went my recent Japan photos (including my bf’s proposal. ahhh.)

One part of me wants to believe that he still had some struggle when he chose to answer the call. Hope he can return the phone to The Red Box reception when he sees this if he does not have the courage to hand it to the police. Otherwise, I sure hope the power of the internet could encourage him to return it.

Attached are some photos of the footage. Full sharing and videos can be found on my fb page: https://www.facebook.com/angminjia/posts/10157756503920315
