TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — An Indonesian woman stole her employer's safe containing NT$2.08 million (US$68,000) and tried to make away with the loot on an e-bike with her boyfriend, but they were soon captured by authorities.

On Monday (Nov. 18), Tsai Hsiao-yueh (蔡效岳), chief investigator of the Taoyuan County Police Bureau's Luzhu Precinct, said that police at 8 p.m. on Saturday (Nov. 16) received a report that a safe had been stolen from a home, reported CNA. The department immediately formed a special team and began to review surveillance footage.

Police found that a couple riding a red e-bike had been spotted at the scene of the crime and began tracking it. After tracing the vehicle's movements on over 100 cameras, they tracked down a vehicle behind a factory in Luzhu District, reported ETtoday.

However, officers discovered that the bike was green in color and began to think that they had followed the wrong vehicle. After carefully inspecting the bike, officers noticed that the paint was still wet and that traces of red were still visible, leading them to suspect that it was the same bike ridden by the suspects, reported Liberty Times.    [FULL  STORY]
