Recently there have been a succession of thefts of outer garment from
department stores in Taipei’s Xinyi District, including one outer garment of high-end brand name worth almost NT$50,000. Police consulted CCTV footage and homed in on a 36-year-old male, surnamed Chiu, as being implicated in the cases. When police headed to Chiu’s house to find him, he was not at home. Little could they have imagined that a person who was seen pacing up and down outside the police station in a suspicious manner in the middle of the night later that very day would, following questioning, turn out to be none other than Chiu.
Chiu said that when he found out that the police had come knocking on his door, he became worried that his family would discover that he had been stealing things, and that was why he decided to go to the police of his own accord and turn himself in. [FULL STORY]
