A woman who was caught and shamed for stealing cash inside a banking hall was arraigned in Thika Law Court on Monday.

Appearing before senior resident magistrate Grace Omodho, the accused, Nancy Wawira Muthoni, was charged with stealing from Grace Watere Wairimu on August 25 at Kenya Commercial Bank in Ruiru with other accomplices who were not before the court.

The court was told that the accused, with her accomplices, stole Sh30,000 from Ms Wairimu, a first year student pursuing Diploma in Public Relations at the Multimedia University.

The court further heard that the accused stole the money from the student as she was filling in a deposit slip, when she unzipped her victim’s bag and took the money and handed it over to her male accomplice.

The complainant alerted the security guards prompting the arrest of the woman. The bank’s CCTV footage revealed how the woman took the money from the student’s bag.

The accused, who was freed on a bond of Sh40,000 and a surety of similar amount, pleaded for reduction of the bond but was advised to wait until November 9 when her case will be heard.
