Three local women who shoplifted from a department store in Kampong Mentiri were fined by the Magistrate’s Court.

Nurhasleen binti Mazlan, 18, Nur Afikah binti Zainuddin, 19, and Sufiana binti Haji Md Yussof, 33, were each ordered to pay a fine of BND650, or serve a month’s imprisonment in default.

Investigation Officer of the Muara Police Station Probationary Inspector (P/Insp) Awangku Muhd Waie @ Awangku Fathurrahman bin Pengiran Abdullah said that the three women were arrested on September 26, after CCTV footage showed them stuffing bottles of deodorant into their bags without making a payment.
