An auxiliary policeman was jailed yesterday for trying to swindle his banking employers out of $200,000. Lee Yun-chuen, 23, was sentenced to two years and four months for his role in a plot hatched with force colleague Ng Kam-hung. Lee, a Hongkong Bank teller, stole account information relating to customers and passed it to his accomplice, the District Court was told. The information allowed Ng to fill in a withdrawal slip and, using a forged identity card, attempt to obtain $200,000 from a Hongkong Bank branch in Tsuen Wan, prosecutor Alain Sham said. But the scheme fell apart when Ng's signature failed to match the one in the bank's computer records. A suspicious employee called the police and Ng was arrested. Judge Donald Christie told Lee, who admitted conspiracy to defraud, he had played a key role in the offence and had breached the trust placed in him by his employer. Defence lawyer Albert Luk Wai-hung said his client had needed more money to support his wife and five-month-old son. He urged the judge to take into account Lee had contributed to the community by working as a part-time police officer. Ng, 25, an unemployed foreman, was jailed in April for 18 months after admitting attempting to obtain property by deception and using a false identity card.
