According to reports, the phone is retrieved but unfortunately all of the phone’s contents have been deleted. The credit cards that were in the phone case was gone as well. According to the police her NRIC and all other cards have been thrown to garbage bins.
A 44-year-old woman(we assume the one in the picture) is ‘assisting’ the police with the investigation of the stolen phone.
The victim also shared her story after the ordeal:
“I’m angry at myself for making such a careless mistake that I would not commit usually. At the same time, I’m feeling sad about all the photos and videos of my loved ones that I did not back up, including those of my mum who passed away long ago.”
She added that she hopes her story will stop others from taking things that do not belong to them:
“I just hope that everyone will not let greed take over them. They might be able to get away with it once but eventually, bad karma will catch on to them.
“I have seen comments saying finders keepers but I strongly disagree with whoever came up with that analogy.
“It just shows how one can let greed and selfishness take over their conscience without thinking about how the other party would feel. Think before you act. The good will always be rewarded with good.
“I also sincerely thank everyone who has helped me to share and track this lady. I am extremely grateful and no amount of thank yous will ever be enough. I will be extremely vigilant from now on.”
