NAGA CITY (Bicol Standard)— A 28-year old woman who is eight months pregnant is now in the custody of the police after she was positively identified in a CCTV footage as the person involved in the theft of cellphones, here.

The investigators identified the suspect as Aileen Lamrana.

During the police interrogation, Lamrana admitted that she was forced to engage in the illegal act of stealing because she badly needs money due to extreme poverty.

Among the evidence presented against her was the CCTV footage from a lawfirm establishment where she was seen giving intructions to a three-year old male child to get several bags which were left unattended.

The suspect admitted that at least seven cellphones were stolen by her in separate operations.

At press time, Lamrana is still in the police custody waiting for the filing of the cases against her.

She told the authorities that she is asking for forgiveness for the crimes that she had committed.
