  • Couple sneaked into posh hotel and snatched item when guest was in restaurant

A British couple have been caught on camera stealing a hotel guest’s handbag from a sun lounger before withdrawing hundreds of pounds from the victim’s account and then getting arrested by Turkish police. 

Images show the pair in handcuffs being led into a police station after they sneaked into the hotel and stole a woman’s bag and then used her credit card to go on a spending spree. 

The couple can be seen rummaging about on a sun lounger in CCTV footage after sneaking into the posh hotel in the Turkish city of Marmaris.

When another guest went to the hotel restaurant they snatched her bag and made a speedy exit.

The unsuspecting woman had no idea her bag had been stolen until she received a notification on her phone that £829 had been withdrawn from her account.

The police discovered the theft of the bag using the hotel’s CCTV cameras.

Detectives then spent hours studying street footage around the city to track the progress of the pair and eventually located them at their hotel in the Armutalan District only a few hours after the theft.

Police said that the British man, aged 34, had been released on bail after he was interviewed at the police station, but the British woman, aged 32, was being kept in custody, according to local media.

The stolen handbag was also recovered in the couple’s hotel room and returned to the victim.
