BANGALORE: Hennur police have arrested a 22-year-old HR professional of a software company for allegedly stealing gold jewellery from her friend’s house frequently. Police, who laid a trap to catch her red-handed, recovered 210 gm of gold jewellery worth Rs 4.5 lakh.

The accused has been identified as Elizabeth alias Mary, a resident of Govindapura in D J Halli.

Police said Elizabeth was a close friend of Puja Sharma, who lives at BDS Garden in Hennur, and the two were classmates from PUC. Elizabeth, after joining for work, used to often visit Puja’s house and some gold jewellery would go missing from the house. Upset over this, Puja filed a complaint suspecting that her domestic help could be behind this.

Police, after questioning the domestic help, prepared a list of visitors to Puja’s house and suspected that Elizabeth could be behind this. They then laid a trap.

A few days ago, Elizabeth visited Puja’s house. On the instructions of the police, Pooja left three of her gold rings, weighing 30 gm, on a table and pretended to be busy. After Elizabeth left the house Puja found that her rings were stolen. She immediately called the police who then rushed to Elizabeth’s house and questioned her. As she pleaded innocence, some women police took her to a room and searched her. The stolen rings were found in her inner wear.

During the interrogation Elizabeth confessed that she had stolen the jewels to lead a lavish life and also to repay her father’s debts. She had sold the stolen jewellery to a pawn broker on Commercial Street and had bought high-end gadgets with the money, police added.
