Gold necklace thief is caught by shop worker after chase


A man who attempted to steal a gold necklace
from a jewellery store in China was arrested on Tuesday following a chase involving shop
employees and local residents. This surveillance footage shows the man entering a gold shop
at around 10.40am and asking a saleswoman to let him try on a gold necklace worth over
$3,000. When he was asked to take off the necklace
and return it, the man began talking on his phone whilst walking towards the door. He then ran out of the shop and was chased
by one of the saleswomen. The thief was caught by the store workers
and passersby whilst attempting to hail a taxi. Police eventually arrived at the scene and
took the man into custody. The 27-year-old robbery suspect is a local
resident who said he attempted the robbery to pay off a gambling debt.
