The Magistrates’ Court yesterday ordered a 39-year-old man to serve four months in prison for stealing a goat.
Hasbollah bin Husaini had stolen the animal from an enclosure at Jalan Singa Menteri in Kuala Belait on May 28. On discovering the theft, the owner notified the Kuala Belait Police Station, which led to the defendant’s arrest.
The police recovered the goat from a shop in Seria, where the defendant had sold it for BND140. It was eventually returned to the owner.
