Mei-yan, popularly known as So Miu or Cry So, has garnered over 80K followers on Instagram and has over time become famous for flaunting off her luxury lifestyle. It’s suspected that the robbery at her home in Hong Kong resulted from the showcased array of wealth on her social media pages.
25-Year-Old Mei-yan, popularly known as So Miu or Cry So, was robbed of $400,000 worth of items in her home in Hong Kong.
The Instagram model and her 6-month-old Son were recently tied up at knifepoint robbery at around 11 a.m. by three men, who eventually did make off with a haul of approximately $400,000 worth of items. It includes two smartphones, a laptop, seven watches, and even ten handbags.
Mei-yan claimed she and her child, along with her child’s babysitter, were all tied with adhesive tape, threatened with a knife, and forced into a room by the robbers, who then searched the house. According to a statement, Mei-yan was sleeping in the master bedroom of her home in One West Kowloon on Lai Chi Kok Road while her son was in the sitting room with the carer at the time of the incident.
She admitted hearing a noise in the living room and going out to check; three men wearing caps, black surgical masks, and carrying a fruit knife or wooden rods were already inside her flat. Mei-yan’s version of events was backed up by the police, who in a statement claimed: ‘As the doorbell rang, the maid opened the door and three men rushed in.’ ‘We are checking security cameras to gather evidence.’ The police revealed.
Specifically, the Instagram model was tied up with an adhesive tape, along with her baby and her nanny, with one standing guard while the other two searched the flat. The robbers got increasingly angered when they couldn’t find any cash. One of the intruders had rubbed her son’s forehead with force – it prompted a punched on her face, of which she asked that they take whatever they wanted.
In the end, the disgruntled robbers settled for luxurious items worth hundreds of thousands. In an Instagram post following the incident, Mei-yan used her virtual fame to plead with her thousands of followers to bring the robbers to justice.
Interestingly, she’s offering an incentive of £194,000. On the other hand, the mom-of-one blamed the building’s management company – Goodwell Property Management, for the robbery, stating she had informed them not to allow anyone in without her permission. For related stories, click here and here.
