Suspended jail term
A man from Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq who yesterday admitted to stealing from three residences in Xemxija was given a two-year jail term suspended for four years.
Kenneth Borg, 30, pleaded guilty to stealing over €232.94 (Lm100) from a residence in St Agatha's Complex, a penthouse in Katerina Vitale Street and taking under €2,329 (Lm1,000) from a flat in the L-Ambjent Complex between May 2006 and May 2007.
Police Inspector Daniel Zammit told the court that Mr Borg had made improvements in his lifestyle since he had enrolled in a residential drug rehabilitation programme. Taking this into consideration, Magistrate Anthony Vella handed down a two-year jail term suspended for four years.
Lawyers Daniela Mangion and Gabrielle Buttigieg appeared for Mr Borg.
