Is it a true story? You can bet (perhaps up to poetic license in the details)! Police records are full of such incidents and probably have been since they have been invented. The role of the thief is equally shared by men and women. I once witnessed a young woman denouncing her (former) boyfriend to the police - the policewoman did her routine job.
Venezuela? Probably did not extradite thieves. (Remember Ronald Biggs, who ran to Brazil.) In this case she wrote him a postcard telling him that the 5000$ were only a fair compensation for her years of suffering under his temper.
