A burglar who left his pager number for the victims to redeem title deeds to their property was jailed for four years yesterday. Chit Yiu-fai also tricked four other people into disclosing their personal particulars so he could apply for credit cards and bank loans. District Court Judge Bernard Whaley said the offences were part of an elaborate strategy that had been carefully planned and implemented between December 1996 and April 1997. 'In the course of it, many different people in different walks of life were deceived by the defendant,' the judge said. He told Chit: 'You misused your intelligence for illegal aims.' The prosecution said Chit burgled the flat of Chan Tat-wing and Chan Hing-lun at Kuen Yick house in On Ning Road, Yuen Long. He left a note with his pager number urging his victims to contact him to redeem their flat's title deeds for a fee. The 26-year-old defendant also used the stolen documents and bank books from the flat to withdraw $25,000 from Chan Tat-wing's account. The court heard Chit also used three other people's credit cards to buy a ring and cosmetics. He posed as an express delivery worker to get them to give their personal details. He also used an employee's personal information to make a personal loan of $20,000. Chit was found guilty of two charges of theft, one of burglary, using a false instrument, attempting to obtain property by deception, obtaining a pecuniary advantage by deception and two of obtaining property by deception. Two other deception charges were dropped. Chit denied all the charges.
