After returning from the pool, she noticed that the valuables, including a gold chain and a pair of bangles, were missing. Based on the complaint, the police registered a theft case and conducted a detailed probe before picking up the coach identified as Mamatha.

A detailed questioning led her to confess to the crime, police said. Based on her confession, the police arrested Swamy, a cab driver friend of Mamatha and recovered the valuables from him. The accused had given the stolen valuables to Swamy to dispose of them with an assurance to share the booty.
