THE Magistrate’s Court yesterday handed a 12-month jail sentence to a pair of brothers who pleaded guilty to theft.

Mohammad Yakop bin Zaini, 31, and Mohammad Nazrie bin Zaini, 19, stole two gold bracelets, a gold ring, a gold necklace and a DVD player from a house in RPN Kampong Mentiri sometime in September 2017.

Magistrate Hajah Ervy Sufitriana binti Haji Abdul Rahman heard from DPP Qamarul Affyian bin Abdul Rahman that the brothers sold the items for BND600 and used the cash for themselves.

The house owner realised of his missing belongings and lodged a police report which soon after led to the duo’s arrests.
