A former MTR Corporation ticket seller admitted stealing nearly HK$54,000 by selling children's tickets to adults and pocketing the difference. Lam Kit-ching, 46, worked for the MTR for 20 years. She was convicted of theft yesterday at Kowloon City Court. Lam pasted labels on HK$95 children's tickets and sold them to adults at the HK$190 adult price from May to July last year at the Hung Hom station. The trial was adjourned until May 5. She was remanded.
