According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the authorities arrested Arcelie Dela Cruz, 37, of Isabela City on Sunday at around 1.30pm.
The arrest came after victim Michael Ti alerted the police that he lost his money placed inside the pocket of his denim pants which he hung on his bedroom door in his condominium unit in Binondo, Manila.

Some of the cash was retrieved from the toilet.
