A LOCAL was jailed for three months after stealing cable wires from a house in Jalan Sangai Sangai at about 6am on October 25.
He sold the items to a scrap metal company to buy a birthday gift for his wife and purchased items for his children.
Asri bin Haji Taib, 27, had also damaged the cable wires, which led to an offence of mischief.
Asri was driving around the area when he stole the cables, which were installed outside an unoccupied house.
Magistrate Azrimah Rahman heard from DPP Dk Didi Pg Latiff that the defendant admitted to the police when the report was lodged.
