The Filipino denied the charge at Eastern Court today

A Filipino man pleaded not guilty today, Aug 10, to theft and attempting to obtain property by deception for allegedly using a stolen credit card to pay for goods at a grocery in Discovery Bay.

Defendant J. Dagohoy entered his plea before Eastern Magistrate Bina Chainrai, who set down his two-day trial on Oct 14.


Dagohoy appeared in court alone earlier and tried to enter a plea, but Magistrate So Wai-tak told him he needed to find a lawyer to represent him because his case was serious.
Police said Dagohoy went to a Wellcome Supermarket in Discovery Bay on the evening of Mar 20 and filled his shopping cart with $2,975 worth of items including boxes of chocolates, whiskey, socks and stockings, as well as surgical masks.



He allegedly tried to pay for the goods using a Visa credit card, but the sales lady told him there was a problem with the card.

The defendant reportedly said he owned the credit card and was also its authorized user.


The prosecution said it would call the supermarket sales lady, the arresting officer and the card owner to give evidence.
