KUALA LUMPUR  –  Two sisters were sentenced to a day’s jail and fined RM1,000 after they pleaded guilty to stealing various goods from a supermarket here three days ago.

The sisters, Salmah Ismail, 42, of Cheras and Hasnani Ismail, 41, of Batu Caves, Selangor pleaded guilty Monday before Magistrate Erry Shahriman Nor Aripin to stealing branded children’s clothing, a bed sheet set and stationery valued at RM1,497.76 at the AEON Supermarket in Taman Maluri, Cheras, at 2.15pm on Dec 21.

The sisters, both single mothers, said in mitigation that they had to steal because they had to take care of their children.
