Serial shoplifter sentenced to 6 months

Posted by jtsmyth8 on February 14, 2008

A serial shoplifter, with 14 previous convictions for thefts, was jailed for six months on Wednesday for stealing a Gucci bag – one month after her release from prison for stealing branded bags. Community Court judge Bala Reddy warned Koh Shuen Ling, 33, that she would be considered for corrective training if she steals again.

The court heard that in the latest incident, a sales staff at Gucci in Paragon shopping centre found a black handbag missing from the display shelf on Nov 26 last year.

After viewing the closed-circuit television footage, a senior sales supervisor saw Koh slinging the stolen handbag over her right arm and hiding it with her own carrier bag. (story)
