MANILA, Philippines - A man was arrested after he allegedly prodded his teenage girlfriend to steal from her employer in Caloocan City.

Suspects Marlou Manile and Anna (not her real name), 14, were arrested Thursday night after taking off with about P80,000 worth of cash and valuables from the Labsan family earlier that day.

Police said Manile and Anna grabbed the chance to take the valuables while members of the family were out.

They said some of the valuables, including jewelry, were already missing when they arrested the two.

Manile denied committing the crime but Anna admitted to taking off with the valuables with him.

A knife was also retrieved from Manile, who has been jailed and is facing several charges.

Anna, meanwhile, was brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development for rehabilitation. – Umagang Kay Ganda, May 4 2012
