A plasma television thief, Uche Udoma, has claimed that he found the motivation to steal due to his inability to pay his ailing son's medical bills.

The suspect, who is a car panel beater in Abia State insisted that he was left with stealing as an only alternative to his problem.

“That was what led me into stealing.

"I broke into my neighbour’s house and stole her Plasma television, but I was caught in the act and the television set was collected back from me,”  he confessed
