Anne was found guilty of handling stolen property which had been brought to her house by his boyfriend. He had come home with a phone and a laptop which he claimed that they belonged to one of his customers who had forgot them in his taxi.

In a surprise ambush, the police raided her house and found the goods in her custody. More investigations were done in the man's residence where more electronic goods which were allegedly stolen were recovered.
