Are they for real? This is probably the question that pops to anyone’s mind after watching a pair of lovey-dovey criminals acting mushy mushy while robbing a shop.
The pair were caught by surveillance cameras in a shop kissing passionately in the after stealing a sum of £213 from a shop in China’s Sichuan province.
Little did it cross the minds of the unsuspecting duo that the management of the shop could have possibly installed CCTV cameras in the shop.
After analysing the footage, police officials were able to trace and arrest the culprits on the spot.
The duo were identified as 19-year-old Lei Yu and his girlfriend 18-year-old Xiang Ch’iu.
The owner of the store attacked by the romantic couple, Gong Chen said, “They were amateurs because apart from the cash, they did not take anything of value.
“There were cameras and laptop computers and smart phones and they left it all behind because they were so busy kissing.
“That kiss was their undoing.
“They did it as if they were celebrating but it wasn’t for long.”
A police spokesman said, “We tracked them down thanks to a tip off from a social media user, and found some of the stolen cash on them.
“They were arrested on the spot.”
