Returning Stolen Goods ...
A house burglar walked straight into the clutches of the law when he agreed to meet his victim to return one of her stolen possessions, police said Friday.
The man allegedly stole two gold rings and a mobile phone from a woman's home in eastern Terengganu state earlier this week, said Hazam Abdul Halim, the state's police chief for criminal investigations.
She then called the man on the stolen phone and asked him to meet her near a restaurant to return her phone's subscriber identity chip, Hazam said.
"Fortunately, the suspect agreed," Hazam said.
The woman alerted authorities, who waited for the man and arrested him, Hazam said. The suspect was being held in police custody while officials investigate the case.
