A 23-year-old local man will learn his fate on July 6 after he pleaded guilty in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday to a charge of house trespass.
DPP Hajah Siti Mu’izzah binti Hajii Sabli revealed in court that Muhammad Azem Hazwan bin Abdul Razak trespassed into a workshop in Kampong Mentiri between late November 8, 2019 night and early the next morning.
Intermediate Court Judge Hajah Hazarena binti Pehin Orang Kaya Setia Jaya Dato Paduka Haji Hurairah further heard from the prosecution that the defendant broke into the workshop, accompanied by two others, making away with 18 bottles of motor oil. The defendant took two bottles himself.
The trio sold the bottled motor oil and split the money among themselves.
A worker alerted the manager after detecting the missing items. A police report was filed and investigations led to the defendant’s arrest.
The court was also informed that the defendant holds nine previous convictions in his criminal record.
