Surveillance video leads to bag-snatching thief’s arrest

Date Posted: 2011-04-14

An 18-year-old college student has been arrested and charged with snatching a shoulder bag from a woman walking to her home after a surveillance video was enough to let Tomishiro Police make an identification.

The teenager, a college student living in Naha, is accused of snatching the bag from a 22-year-old woman as she walked through a prefectural housing complex in Naha City. The purse contained ¥15,000 and personal property. Police say footage from a surveillance camera in the housing area gave them the leads that led to interviews from people at the scene and ultimately, the arrest.

Okinawa Prefectural Police say this is the first time a suspect has been apprehended in any of the 24 bag snatching cases that have happened this year.
