Thief tricks maid, robs techies

Two men took the mobile phones and laptops of four software engineers, in BTM Layout on Thursday morning.

One of the accused gained entry into the house at 6.15 a.m. by following the maid. When she questioned him, he said he was a friend of her employers. While the maid and the thief were walking to the apartment, they passed one of the engineers, Sabhapathi, who was heading out. According to the police, he assumed that the man was known to the maid.

The thief entered the apartment where the three other engineers were asleep. He stole three mobile phones and three laptops worth over Rs. 3.5 lakh, while the maid went about the household chores.

The incident came to light around 6.40 a.m. when the other three woke up.

“CCTV footage shows the thief walking away with the laptop bags along with an accomplice who was waiting outside the house,” said the Mico Layout police.
