A middle-aged woman and a young man have been filmed by a CCTV camera stealing from a wine shop at Tema Community 9 a neighbourhood in Ghana. The police have yet to confirm the incident and details about the young man and the woman.
However, information circulating on social media indicates that the pair are mother and son. The footage shows the woman's appearance clad in dark attire while her son wears a dark shirt over faded jean trousers and a face mask.
From their attire, one could assume that they were still mourning the loss of a loved one.
In the video circulating online, the young man is seen carefully unboxing the expensive wine he took from the shelf and passing it to his mother, who goes ahead to hide it beneath her outfit.
The young man is also seen stealing wine and hiding it in his faded jeans. The mother-son duo proceeds to the counter to pay for what they originally bought. Unknown to the pair, CCTV cameras had captured them stealing and hiding other items from the wine shop.
Owners of the wine shop shared the video to appeal to the public for information on the two and are requesting for people to contact them.
