A Nigerian woman, Akudihor Jennifer who went to United States of America for holiday, has been nabbed for shoplifting.
KBMC reports that Akudihor was caught stealing items worth over $2,000 at Macy Oak Park Mall, in Johnson County.
Akudihor , who traveled to the United States with her three children, was arrested after a CCTV footage showed her stealing 66 different items including clothes and accessories which she stuffed under the stroller and was pushing through the entrance of the shop, the report disclosed.
It further stated that the mother of three has been charged with felony theft with her passport seized, adding that her bail has been set at $2,500.
According to the spokesperson for the Overland Park Police Department, Sgt Gary Mason, “The officer in the report said that she was very apologetic and remorseful, and that does go a long way, and he put that in the report, so I think it does help in this situation.
“Everybody has a story. There’s always a lot of reasons why people do this, and it’s not for us to decide. It’s up to the courts and the judge to look at her case.”
Mason further noted that the reason behind the theft was however unknown as they could not tell if she stole the items because she had no money or not.
This certainly isn’t the way to go about it. Now she’s going to have some legal problems that she’s going to have to deal with,” Mason stated.
