A burglar entered his neighbour's flat through a window three times in a day to return two necklaces in exchange for more valuable items. Judge Richard Davies yesterday jailed Yuen Chun-wai, 25, for two years and eight months after Yuen admitted four charges of burglary. The District Court judge described the burglaries, which took place when the neighbour was at work, as 'particularly mean'. Prosecutor Catherine Fung said Yuen climbed into neighbour Kwan Pui-sun's flat on May 7 this year through a kitchen window. On that occasion, he stole two diamond rings worth $5,300. Mr Kwan made a report to the police and installed a closed-circuit television in the living room. A week later, Yuen returned to the flat three times through the same window. He was filmed by the camera and arrested the same day. Under caution, Yuen told the police that, on his first trip, he had stolen a necklace, a ring, and a bra which he had touched. He said he went back to the flat because he thought the necklace might be worthless. He returned it and took away another one as replacement. On the third visit, he returned that necklace for the same reason, and took two pendants and $170 in cash. Yuen pawned the two rings and spent the proceeds as well as the stolen cash. In mitigation, Yuen's lawyer, Tam Lai-shing, said the defendant was driven to the crime because he is jobless.
