KUWAIT CITY, April 22: The Hawalli detectives have arrested two women – a Kuwaiti and a Canadian of Arab origin – for shoplifting from prestigious garment stores in a well-known mall, reports Al-Anba daily.
A security source said the arrest came after police received several complaints that expensive clothes went missing in spite of the presence of the alarm system.
Police then requested to see the CCTV footage of one of the shops and saw the two women at work. One of them would keep the saleswoman busy with queries while the other would hide expensive clothing.
The source added the shoplifters used a special device to deactivate the security tag on the clothing.
During interrogation the thieves have admitted to committing eight thefts.
