THE Magistrate’s Court yesterday sentenced a 44-year-old Bruneian to three months’ imprisonment after the man pleaded guilty to thieving from a school.
The court heard that Alfian Junaidi stole a gas cylinder, a Pensonic single cooker and a can of Shelltox from Sekolah Rendah PSN Pg Hj Mohd Yusof at around 8pm on September 19, 2014.
DPP Kamaliah Ibrahim informed Senior Magistrate Muhammed Faisal PD Kefli that the defendant was walking around the vicinity of his house at Lorong 3 Selatan in Seria, looking to get food for his children. Realising he had no money, he decided to steal.
He knew the neighbourhood school had no security personnel on watch and decided he would strike there. He crawled under the gate and headed for the canteen area, entering its kitchen by pushing the door thrice. He took with him the items which he found.
