A JUDGE yesterday scolded a 23-year-old robber, telling him he was a 'naughty little boy' who should 'grow up' and get a proper job. Part-time barman Lau Wai-ming had pleaded guilty to charges of robbery and burglary at two Wendy's hamburger restaurants. Judge Chua praised Lau for surrendering to police but added that he should stick to shaking martinis instead of stirring trouble. His surrender had assisted the arrest of his two alleged accomplices, she said, but she criticised him for failing to develop his career and for turning to crime to make a fast buck. Prosecutor Polly Wan told the court that on July 24 this year Lau stole $168,000 from a safe in Wendy's Wan Chai restaurant along with 20-year-old Nicky Co and a 21-year-old man. Co, the restaurant's assistant manager at the time, admitted under caution that he had provided keys and the combination of the safe. He has already pleaded guilty to burglary and was sent to a training centre. The court was told Lau and his accomplice also robbed and bound two staff of Wendy's restaurant in Tsuen Wan Plaza at about 11.30 pm on September 8. The defendants entered, brandishing a fruit knife. They bound and gagged assistant manager Lam Fung-lin and part-time cashier Lui Siu-fun before fleeing with $18,431. The third man admits burglary but denies involvement in the robbery. He will be tried in March. Judge Chua adjourned sentence on Lau until Friday.
