A MAN who stole a toy for his son and attempted to steal another is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty.

The court document submitted by prosecuting officer Muhammad Aiman Adri Ahmad Zakaria states that Mohammad Rafi Ezamdie Muhammad Daud, 24, was arrested on August 12 while attempting to steal a Hex Bug toy from Toys R Us.

An investigation later found that he had visited the store on August 10 and stole a Helicopter X3 Quadcopter. He then gave the toy to his son as a gift.

Mohammad Rafi faces up to seven years in prison and an unspecified amount in fines for stealing the Quadcopter, while the offence for attempting to steal carries a prison term of up to half of the longest term provided for the offence.

Yesterday, he was ordered to be further remanded at Jerudong Prison pending sentencing on August 17.
