Thief caught on CCTV stealing cuddly toys from claw machine in Taiwan

A woman was caught on camera stealing cuddly toys from a claw machine in Taipei, Taiwan on July 29.

In the CCTV footage, the woman reached inside the hole intended for the exit where the prize normally drop.

She grabs a blue bag packed with cuddly toys and children's gifts, before dragging it through the hatch.

Owner Emily Wu says that she has caught the same woman stealing in her shop five times.

She said: ''I don't want her to have a police record, I just want her to please stop. The price of a cheap toy is not worth it for a police record.

''The whole point of the games is that playing them and trying to win is the fun part.''
