An unemployed man was jailed for 14 months on Monday for snatch theft and other offences involving property of about $3,300.

David Low Fuh Shim, 48, who faced 12 charges altogether, pleaded guilty to five charges of theft, snatch theft, fraudulent possession and shop theft between October last year and February this year.

He committed four of the offences on Oct 6 when he was still under a two-year mandatory treatment order for dishonest misappropriation of property and providing false information of a terrorist act.

A district court heard that Low stole $112 worth of items from NTUC FairPrice in Bishan Street 13 on Oct 6 last year.
