Police arrested a woman for allegedly stealing money which had been accidentally left by its owner in a jacket she washed at a coin-operated laundry in Hung Hom, Kowloon on Tuesday.

The alleged theft happened on February 7 when a 50-year-old woman surnamed Mok, said to be a flower shop owner, washed her clothes at a coin laundry on Bulkeley Street in Hung Hom, Apple Daily reported.

Mok reportedly forgot that a pocket of a jacket included in her laundry held HK$90,000 (US$11,466) in cash, and while the laundry was being washed, she returned to her nearby flower shop.

A few hours later, when she returned to the laundry she found someone had taken her clothes out of the machine and she was shocked to find around HK$20,000 in banknotes left inside the machine.

Police examined the laundry’s surveillance camera footage and determined that a woman had taken banknotes from the machine.

At 9am on Tuesday, police officers arrested a 34-year-old Nepali woman for alleged theft as she left her subdivided flat on Baker Street, Headline Daily reported.

It is understood that HK$30,000 had been deposited in the suspect’s bank account.

The woman was taken in for questioning. Officers are investigating the HK$40,000 that is allegedly missing.
