Julia walked confidently, trying to look casual. She had stolen something again. It was not from a supermarket this time, but a jewellery shop. She checked her pockets. Yes! The tiny diamond ring was still safe. Though shoplifting in a foreign country scared Julia a little, she did not detect a camera. As she tried to cross the road, she spotted two security men, looking at her. Panicked, Julia started running, only to collide against a man who was standing in her path. She blinked in shock, as she saw the man jumping at her with an outstretched hand. She was handcuffed by the time she realized it was only a statue.
