SINGAPORE - Despite being in the midst of a court case for housebreaking, a student broke into his friend's unit and stole $250.
Mohammad Suffian Mohammad Sapri, 23, then a student at Singapore International Sports Academy, was sentenced to 21 months after pleading guilty to housebreaking and theft of $3,100 worth of property at a flat in Woodlands Street 82, and later breaking into his friend's home in Sims Drive and stealing $250.
A district court heard that on the morning of Oct 21 last year, he went to Madam Suliah Munjin's flat at Sims Drive after his court mention for the first break-in and theft charge committed on Sept 20.
