Morsidi bin Haji Ya’akub, 33, was sentenced to 13 months of imprisonment yesterday by Senior Magistrate Azrimah binti Abdul Rahman, after he pleaded guilty to charges of theft and fitting a car with false registration plates.
The defendant was reported for stealing car keys from his brother’s neighbour at RPN Bukit Beruang Tutong on February 2. The following day, the defendant managed to steal the actual car.
He then tried to hide the car's original colour with spray paint, and replaced the registration plates with false ones.
