A local man will learn his fate on May 23, after he pleaded guilty to housebreaking and theft in the Intermediate Court yesterday.

On September 16, 2019, Hasmyzan Hamzi bin Haji Hashimi, 33, stole a car from a parking spot on Jalan Jaya Negara in Kuala Belait.

Sometime in September 2019, the defendant also broke into an office on Jalan Maulana, Kuala Belait, for the theft of five television sets.

Again, sometime between April and May this year, the defendant broke into a house on Jalan Jaya Negara at night, for the theft of an Apple iMac and accessories, along with a tablet, a headset, a decorative telescope, a torch, an LCD monitor and a car key.

Earlier this month, the defendant stole a car battery from a car parked in an area along Jalan Sungai Pandan.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Raihan Nabilah binti Haji Ahmad Ghazali provided these facts before Judge Pengiran Masni binti Pengiran Haji Bahar in court.
