TWO suspects who posed as “customers” in a computer shop in Quezon City were caught in the CCTV (closed-circuit television) camera while stealing a laptop.

The suspects, one female, and her male accomplice were collared as they attempted to escape from the computer store in Barangay Valencia at around 5:43 p.m. on Wednesday.

A report from Cubao Police Station 7 showed security guards of the said computer shop immediately chased the suspects after they were spotted in a surveillance camera allegedly hiding the laptop under the woman’s skirt.

Investigators said the duo entered the store and posed as customers.

While the male suspect pretended to be checking some items, the woman took a laptop worth P39,500 and placed it under her skirt.

The store’s marketing manager alerted security guards, who then apprehended the suspects after a brief chase.

At the police station’s lock-up cell, the duo admitted they planned to sell the laptop online.

Authorities are preparing theft charges against the suspects.
