The Myanmar Times - - News -

A man was ar­rested after po­lice say he pil­fered money from a woman’s purse while on a bus on Septem­ber 3.

Ma Wai Nwe Myint got on the 101 bus at the Pauk Taw Wa bus stop at about noon, headed home from In­sein town­ship. While on the bus, she no­ticed that the zip­per of her hand­bag, which she had rested on her leg and held with her hand, was opened. She looked in­side and re­alised that K550,000 and a phone were miss­ing. She asked po­lice to help her find the man who had stood in front of her on the bus.

They caught the man, whose iden­tity has not been re­leased, near Aung San mar­ket, after a chase. They found phones and cash that had been taken from sev­eral other peo­ple in his pos­ses­sion as well. He faces up to three years in prison for theft. – Toe Wai Aung, trans­la­tion by Emoon and Win Thaw Tar
