A 37-YEAR-OLD local was yesterday sentenced to 16 months imprisonment after pleading guilty to theft.
Haji Endi Endrawardi bin Hj Md Idris stole two water pipe sleeves from Polyflow Sdn Bhd Warehouse at Muara Port in the wee hours of October 31.
Magistrate Azrimah Rahman heard from DPP Danial Kifrawi that the defendant sneaked into the warehouse through an unlocked door to make use of the WIFI for Internet access. He noticed the pipes, saw nobody around and decided to steal them.
He placed the pipes into the company’s Hilux pick-up, drove off and later sold the pipes for $80.
A CCTV camera installed at the warehouse captured footage of the defendant rolling the pipes out of the warehouse. The pipes, worth $5,800, were never recovered.
