A woman was caught on CCTV stealing a bag of another woman while inside the Shangri-la Plaza along EDSA in Ortigas, Mandaluyong. Yes, just as we thought the place is safe because of being an upscale shopping center, the lady thief looks decent enough that you will not think that she is the type of person who steals bag. Watch the CCTV video below.
“Yes, this happened. I can’t believe how stupid and naive I was thinking that Shang was a safe haven and how easy it is to steal bags pala. Medyo pathetic but pls share if you can. I’m not hoping to get my bag and valuables back, I just want justice.” Jowee Atienza wrote on her Facebook page this Wednesday, December 10, 2015 as caption of her video.
As you can see, a pony-tailed woman wearing glasses and decent clothes and carrying a bag is walking around near a restaurant inside Shangri-la Plaza (also called Shang) as if she is looking for place to rest. Little did Atienza knew the culprit is targeting her bag, which she placed under her seat. Slowly but surely, the suspect went nearer to her table and took her bag.

At first, the woman looked around to see if she will be caught. Shortly, she slightly kicked the bag as she goes closer to Atienza’s table. When she came back, she kicked it again so she can easily take it from below. The suspect looked around again before she leans down and grab the bag from under the seat. It only took her less than 30 seconds to steal the bag.
According to Beng Javier Atienza, the victim’s mother, there are 10 CCTV videos given to them by Shangri-la and one of them shows the woman giving the bag to a man before leaving the mall. She added that they are still reviewing the others to get more information about the suspect. As of posting, authorities have not yet released their statement on this incident.

We at TN strongly condemns this act, and we hope the suspect be caught as soon as possible. We urged our readers to share this post and make it viral so that that all of us will be aware of this woman. We also suggest that we don’t put our belongings under the seats while in a public place. Instead, place it somewhere you can see them at all times. Better safe than sorry.
