A housebreaker used his doberman on a 'burglary binge' on religious retreat homes on Cheung Chau. Leung Kwok-wai, 22, gave a new meaning to the term guard dog by using his canine accomplice as a lookout. He admitted 11 counts of housebreaking before District Court Judge Wayne Gould. Between June and September 1996, Leung walked the dog near the scenes of the burglaries as a ploy to cover up his crimes. After gaining entry into the houses and holiday flats, he escaped with TV sets, audio equipment, microwave ovens, cans of soft drinks, a fan, computer components, kitchen utensils and petty cash. But his spree ended in October when a person in charge of a retreat house saw Leung acting suspiciously, said prosecutor Jonathan Shaw. Defence lawyer Noel Leung Chun-kuen said Leung was driven to crime by unemployment. Judge Gould described Leung's spree as a 'burglary binge' and remanded him in custody until April 24 pending a report.
