Malaysian Petrol Thief Jailed And Caned
By Malai FadleyRizal
Bandar Seri Begawan - A 31-year-old Malaysian landed himself in jail for three months with three strokes of the cane after pleading guilty to a theft attempt before the Bandar Magistrate's court yesterday.
Roseli Idris also faced a charge of illegally entering the country without being in possession of a valid pass.
DPP Pg Nina Jasmine said in court that the defendant brought six containers to a piece of cleared land at Kg Padnunok, Lamunin, Tutong on January 24 at about 9pm in his Mitsubishi Pajero registered BN3497.
He then found an excavating machine and siphoned its diesel petrol. The defendant managed to fill up five of the containers and loaded two of the containers into his vehicle when a man saw his actions.
Roseli quickly ran into the surrounding forest. The witness alerted the owner of the excavating machine who then lodged a police report.
Roseli was nowhere to be found until he surrendered himself to the police two days ago and confessed.
Presiding Senior Magistrate Radin Safiee yesterday further heard that Roseli had entered the country through Jalan Kg Bebuloh illegally on January 23. -- Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
