A little girl stealing a wad of cash from a locked drawer in a restaurant, while three women keep the shopkeeper engaged. That was what CCTV cameras recorded at a shop in Navi Mumbai last week, to the shock of the shop owners and the police.
It seemed the modus operandi of the group â€” three women and two little girls. Similar thefts have been recorded at four other shops in the area.
The theft appeared to be well planned. The women, their heads covered in blue dupattas, walk into the shop, accompanied by two little girls.
As they walk ahead and engage the attendants, one of the girls dart behind the counter and tries to open what later turns out to be the cash drawer. The drawer appears locked and she swiftly opens the next one and digs around till she finds the key.
The women meanwhile keep the attendants talking, one of them holding apart her dupatta to screen the girl behind her. The child, meanwhile opens the first drawer, takes out a bunch of banknotes and slips it into a bag. She then gets out from behind the counter and the group leaves.
