A 32-year-old local man was sentenced to a year’s jail by the Magistrate’s Court yesterday after he pleaded guilty to stealing a car.

Khalid bin Dagang, who is currently in jail for another case, stole the car from the parking lot of a convenience store in Kampong Sengkurong sometime between 11.30pm of March 2 and 5am of March 3, 2018.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Raihan Nabilah binti Haji Ahmad Ghazali informed Magistrate Muhammad Marzuqi bin Sabtu that Khalid with two other people in a pick-up car went to where the car was parked and towed it away.

The car’s engine was then dismounted and mounted onto another car of theirs and some other parts sold off.
