A young woman from Bulgaria, aged 23, was denied bail after she was caught stealing another woman’s wallet while they were on a bus to Sliema.
The Court heard how the Police caught Evdokiya Zlatkova yesterday afternoon while they were keeping her under surveillance. The officers saw her carefully opening the woman’s bag and putting her hand inside it.
Zlatkova denied the charge of attempted theft. The Court, presided over by Magistrate Yana Micallef Stafrace, turned down the request for bail after she took into consideration that the woman had refused to give the Police details of her residence in Malta.
