Kansas City police has apprehended a Nigerian woman, Jennifer Akudihor after she was allegedly caught shop lifting out of a Major store in the United States.
The accused who was said to be currently on vacation in the States has since been charged with felony theft.
She was seen in the company of two toddlers and an infant who were reportedly under her care, but was also disgracefully busted, hiding the 66 stolen items shopping bags and inside the stroller she was pushing through Macy’s at Oak Park Mall in Kansas, KMBC reports.
“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,” said Gary Mason of the Overland Park Police Department, said.
“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 also stated that it is unclear what motivated the thefts, and whether the items were taken simply because Akudihor didn’t have money to pay for them.
“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,” he said.
