The Magistrate’s Court yesterday handed a 12 months’ jail sentence to a 33-year-old local man after he pleaded guilty to shoplifting.

DPP Hajah Siti Mui’zzah binti Haji Sabli informed Magistrate Hajah Ervy Sufitriana binti Haji Abdul Rahman that Mohammad Farik Fadillah bin Panjang stole five boxes of chocolate from Najib Supermarket in Kampong Rimba at 9.46am on September 4.

A supermarket attendant realised the boxes missing and asked his colleague if the items had been sold earlier.

They checked the CCTV and came across a footage showing the defendant in action, prompting the duo to file a police report which led to the defendant’s arrest.
