The prosecution said on Dec 11, victim Lau Sum-yi went to a Bank of China ATM booth at the mall and withdrew $2,000. As she was in a hurry, she forgot to take the cash. But when she returned for it minutes later, the money was gone.

She reported the incident to bank staff, who reported it to the police. Officers reviewed the video footage and ATM transactions at the time and were able to trace the defendant.

The magistrate adjourned the case until Jan 13 next year at the request of the defense lawyer to obtain the documents from the prosecution and for legal advice. She extended the defendant’s bail until that date.

The theft cases were moved to the District Court because of their gravity
