A PERMANENT resident was yesterday charged at the Magistrates’ Court for breaking into and stealing from an apartment on Jln Kumbang Pasang.

Mohd Fakhri Maslan, 31, is accused of stealing $40 in cash after breaking into the apartment on the morning of May 12, 2016.

The charges were read to him, but no plea was taken when the defendant appeared before Presiding Magistrate Dewi Norlelawati Hj Abd Hamid yesterday.

During the proceedings, the presiding magistrate ordered the defendant to be remanded at the central police station in the capital until May 26 to allow investigations to be conducted, as the defendant is also suspected to be involved in several other cases of theft.

The next mention of the case is on May 26.
