Magistrate Hajah Ervy Sufitriana Hj Abd Rahman handed sentences of 20 months’ jail to 30-year-old Ak Abuhurairah bin Pg Md Daud and eight months’ jail to 28-year-old Norfaizah binti Abd Hamid.
DPP Danial Kifrawi’s facts of the case stated that Ak Abuhurairah and Norfaizah stole electrical cables by pulling them out from the walls of a building at Kg Kumbang Pasang, near the police barracks at about 12.30pm on November 7.
Ak Abuhurairah snatched a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smart phone from a shop counter in the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah complex as he did not see anyone at the counter at about 12pm on October 10.
