Jailed for stealing blanket for grandma

Thursday March 5, 2009

JOHOR BARU: A woman who stole a blanket for her elderly grandmother as she could not afford to buy one, ended up being jailed and fined by a magistrate’s court.

Lim Kwai Lian, 24, from Taman Bayu Putri told Magistrate Hafizah Johor Ariff Johor that the doctor had advised her to get a thick blanket for her grandmother who was always feeling cold.

“I took the blanket as I could not afford to buy it,” she said, adding that she was her grandmother’s only care-giver.

Lim had been charged with stealing an Akemi Party blanket worth RM172.53 from the Jusco Department store in Tebrau City here at around 4.30pm on Feb 26.

She added that she worked in a beauty parlour and earned RM1,000 a month, but had to pay for their rental and her grandmother’s medical bills.

The court sentenced Lim to five days’ jail and an RM300 fine, in default three months jail.
