MIRI, Dec 20: A trio who robbed a 24-hour convenience shop at Jalan North Yu Seng on Thursday morning (Dec 19) have been remanded for six days by the Magistrate Court.

All three accused, aged 31, 32 and 35 respectively, were produced and unrepresented at Miri Magistrate Court on Friday morning.

Inspector Mohd Fitri, who prosecuted, initially applied for seven days’ remand, but Magistrate Eleanor granted six days.

They all nodded to indicate they understood the charge read to them in Bahasa Malaysia by the court interpreter.


Magistrate Eleanor Mako Timothy meted out the remand order on Friday morning.

According to the charge sheet, the trio was allegedly involved in the robbery where RM600 in cash and mobile reload cards were stolen.

Two of the suspects had walked into the shop and posed as customers before one of them took out a knife demanding the female cashier to hand over the cash inside the cashier machine. —DayakDaily
