Akudihor has however been charged with felony theft, her passport seized and $2,500 has been set for her bail. The spokesperson for the Overland Park Police Department, Sgt Gary Mason said: “The
officer in the report said that she was very apologetic and remorseful, and that does go a long way, and he put that in the report, so I think it does help in this situation. Everybody has a story. There’s always a lot of reasons why people do this, and it’s not for us to decide. It’s up to the courts and the judge to look at her case.”
Mason further noted that the reason behind the theft was however unknown as they could not tell if she stole the items because she had no money or not. “This certainly isn’t the way to go about it. Now she’s going to have some legal problems that she’s going to have to deal with,” Mason stated.
