SEREMBAN: A couple claimed trial at a Magistrate's court here to four counts of committing theft at separate locations in Port Dickson.

Amirul Mu'minin Mustaff and his wife Nor Asedah Zaidi, both 38, from Masjid Tanah in Melaka, pleaded not guilty after the charges were read before magistrate Syed Farid Syed Ali.

For the first charge, both accused, who are petty traders, were jointly accused of stealing an iPad and a mobile phone belonging to a 31-year-old man at a parking lot at Pantai Batu 8 in Teluk Kemang.

They allegedly committed the offence between 1pm and 4.30pm on Jan 20.

The couple were also charged with stealing a Hewlett Packard laptop belonging to a 22-year-old woman at another parking lot at Batu 8 on Jan 27.

For the third charge, they allegedly used the ATM cards from the same victim as well as a 28-year-old woman to withdraw cash from a machine at a petrol station along Jalan Pantai.

This caused both women to suffer losses totalling RM3,052.

These offences were allegedly committed between 11.30am and 2pm on the same day.

Under the fourth charge, both accused allegedly stole a Sony camera and lens belonging to a 25-year-old man in front of a bungalow in Blue Lagoon in Teluk Kemang on Feb 4.

They were charged under Section 379 of the Penal Code, read together with Section 34 of the same Act, for all four charges.

The offence carries a jail term of up to seven years or a fine or both upon conviction.

Syed Farid set bail totalling RM10,000 for both accused and fixed March 26 for the next mention.

Nadia Izzati Mohd Zainal was prosecuted while the couple was represented by lawyer Iwana Sakinah Mohd Lajis from the Legal Aid Bureau.
