Supermarket cashier jailed for lodging false police report


KUALA LUMPUR: A supermarket cashier who lodged a false police report over a missing identity card, was sentenced to three days’ jail and fined RM2,000 by the Selayang Magistrate’s Court.

Magistrate Nik Fadli Nik Azlan handed down the sentence on Siti Norhidayah Mohamad Amin, 29, who pleaded guilty to the charge.

She was charged with committing the offence at the Gombak police station at 1.44am on Dec 12.

Siti Norhidayah, who was ordered to serve the jail sentence from yesterday, paid the fine, reported Bernama.

According to the facts of the case, Siti Norhidayah lodged a police report claiming that she was robbed by two men on a motorcycle, while the incident did not happen and this resulted in a police officer, Jamarul Azuan Abdullah, to conduct an investigation.

It was discovered that she had dropped her wallet containing her identity card and admitted to making the false police report to avoid being fined by the National Registration Department when making a new identity card.
