A Filipino detained for allegedly trying to break into a building on Cheung Chau Island last month had his application to post $5,000 bail refused by the magistrate.

Teofilo Pila, a 28-year-old bartender in Central, appeared before Magistrate Bina Chainrai to apply for bail, but the magistrate rejected his application at the recommendation of the prosecution.
Chainrai said Pila could not be granted bail because of the possibility that he would return to the island and re-offend. But she said he could pursue his bail application at the High Court.

Pila, a Hong Kong resident, was charged with attempted burglary on Aug 30 after he was arrested for trespassing into a building on Hok Loo Lane with intent to steal.
The defendant allegedly tried to escape when somebody saw him break into a room on the second floor of the building, but witnesses were able to identify him in the crowd before police arrested him.

Chainrai adjourned the case until Oct 25 for further investigation. – Vir B. Lumicao
