Yahoo Plus Alert! Man Caught After Stealing Pant and Bra in Delta State.
The Delta Police Command has arrested a young man for allegedly stealing the pant, bra, and wrappers belonging to the owner of “Stop Over Hotel in Delta”, Nigeria.
According to the police, the suspect identified as Matthew was apprehended on Monday, February 1st, 2021 at around 9:45 pm after he arrived at the hotel in clutches for a medical checkup.
The suspect, who is from Ogwashi-Uku town, was in Asaba for medical treatment at the Federal Medical Centre. The hotel owner Mr. Victor Odiachi and his wife assigned the suspect a room on the ground floor of the hotel due to his health condition.
At about 3:00am, Mr. Victor woke up to take his phones in the sitting room and noticed that his two phones had been switched off which prompted him to go to the flower vase, where he usually keeps his car key, only to discover that the key was not there also.
Mr. Victor said they became suspicious and his wife suggested they should search the hotel rooms and when it was the turn to search the suspect’s room, the suspect refused. After shouting and threatening him that they will call the police, he then stopped resisting.
On lifting up the mattress where he slept, they noticed a knotted wrapper containing some items and when it was untied, they found that it contained three of Mr. Victor pants, his wife’s bra, and wrapper, as well as the gate key wrapped in black cellophane.
Mr. Victor said on discovering the items, the suspect pleaded with him not to expose him and even offered to give him and his wife N10, 000 to cover up the incident.
It is not clear what the suspect intended to do with the underwear and other items.
Mr. Victor immediately put a call through to the police at about 4:00am and a police team arrived at Stop Over Hotel and took the suspect to Division A police station, Asaba.
