Recently, a mother and her young daughter were caught stealing watches from a store in Kedah. The incident was caught on CCTV and has since gone viral on the internet.
According to Facebook user Koo Tan Bo, who uploaded several videos on a public group on Tuesday (4th April), the occurrence took place at Amanjaya Mall in Sungai Petani.
“They asked me to shorten the watch straps. While I was doing it, they quietly stole the watches. You’re a woman, don’t you feel ashamed of yourself?” wrote the contributor.
In one of the the clips, the mother and child appeared to be walking around the store while checking out the various watches on display. After the girl indicated that she wanted the watch in the white box, her mum quietly stole the watch and walked away.
As the duo approached another aisle, the same tactic was used as the young girl can be seen taking the watch from her mum and placing it in her pink plastic bag. Watch:
Upon watching the videos, many netizens have criticised the mother’s actions for showing a poor example to her daughter. “Talk about a bad example. With this kind of mindset – I feel sorry for the kid,” wrote Facebook user Gavin Ng Kok Guan. Another expressed sadness for the child’s future.
“If you can’t afford it, then don’t wear it. Why do you have to stoop so low and resort to stealing? Don’t you feel ashamed of yourself? You will only regret it,” someone else commented.
