Miss Korea Actress Booked on Charges of Theft
An actress, a former Miss Korea winner, has been booked without detention on charges of theft.
According to the victim, the actress, who was a close friend, stole the victim’s wallet when they were together at the victim’s home on June 22.
The actress cashed in the checks that were in the stolen wallet, but was caught after she was discovered on the bank’s CCTV.
The victim reported the robbery, but she learned that the checks had already been cashed, and found out through CCTV that it was the actress who had stolen the wallet.
A source close to the victim said, “[The victim] ‘B’ has been close to [the actress] ‘A’ as good friends, but Ms. B is shocked that Ms. A was the one who stole her wallet. Ms. A isn’t active now, but she’s a recognized celebrity and it’s shocking that she committed this deed nevertheless.”
According to the source, the actress stole about 2 million won.
The victim said, “It’s not a small amount, and I can’t believe that a figure that was once a celebrity and even owned a company stole 2 million won.”
The actress was questioned on June 22, and denied some of the charges. The victim was also questioned related to the case on June 25.
A rep from the Gangnam Police Agency, which is in charge of the case, told enews on June 25, “Some charges were filed, so Ms. A was booked on June 25.”
The actress was a former Miss Korea, and used to appear actively in dramas. She also once started a business of her own.
