Emma Vries, 18, was caught while trying to escape after she had broken into a house in Katutura.
The incident occurred on 12 December last year when the teenager snatched a pair of overalls and N$800 in cash.
She did, however, not get far, when the police tracked her down the same day and took her in for questioning.
She was charged with house-breaking with intent to steal but was released on a N$500 bail when she appeared in court last year.
When she briefly reappeared in court last week, she was told that her case had not been finalised.
She will return to court next month on the 12th while further investigations continue.
