Shey u can see that they have released them on bail. Is this not enough encouragement for people to go and steal?

its not new for us to read things like this because if you hear a person pose as a cleric then be very vigilant when having a business transaction.

they being released on bail is not a licence to keep stealing because trial is yet to commence.
